Clowns in the hospital environment

Over the past 30 years, Healthcare Clowning has grown, worldwide, from a powerful idea to an evidence-based practice and developing profession with a growing body of scientific research that demonstrates that “hospital clowns play a significant role in reducing stress and anxiety levels in children admitted to hospitals as well as their parents.”

Healthcare Clowning also offers performing artists a way to utilize their art form in service to their communities.
