Description

Meet Patch Adams, M.D., the revolutionary doctor who has challenged the foundations of modern medicine not only by making healthcare personal, but also by making it free. In 1971, Adams and a few colleagues founded the Gesundheit Institute, a free hospital in West Virginia, dedicated to an unorthodox view of medicine and of the patient- doctor relationship: one employing laughter, listening, and mutual respect. Adams' vision heralds a brighter future, one that offers the possibility of affordable, humane healthcare for all. This extraordinary story was made into a major motion picture starring Robin Williams as Patch Adams.
