Gesundheit! Featuring Patch Adams
18 Dec, 2011
Compassionate healing is available to all people in all professions. Radio Rounds aims to showcase this quality in the field of medicine, and in this Season 6 finale, our guest’s enthusiasm for this concept is contagious.
Featured Guest: Physician and social activist Patch Adams, founder of the world-renowned Gesundheit! Institute. In this episode, Patch energetically discusses his outlook on medicine, life, and the human community, and he shares his feelings about the 1998 film “Patch Adams” starring Robin Williams.
Patch Adams shares with hosts Avash Kalra and John Corker the darker paths of his life that led to his unabashed “love revolution” and his desire to enter the field of medicine. He learned to communicate and connect with people through unorthodox means and shares with us how those experiences taught him to make intimate, personal connections with everyone — most of all, patients all over the world.
