PATCH ADAMS He is an American physician, social activist, citizen diplomat and author. He founded the Gesundheit! Institute in 1971. Each year he organizes a group of volunteers from around the world to travel to various countries where they dress as clowns in an effort to bring humor to orphans, patients, and other people. His life inspired the film Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams.
In times of great sorrow, it can be helpful to remember moments of joy, and in the case of the late Robin Williams, that would be his 1998 Oscars acceptance speech. Watch this touching video clip of late actor.
