Dr. Bray’s Article – The Role of Clowns
The role of clowns helping in hospital settings has been documented in medical publications. Adding to that, Jacob Bray a fellow from the Department of Anesthesiology at The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, just authored an article about the work of Caring Clowns International and the cranio facial surgical team of Komedyplast during their medical missions to Lima, Peru. Dr. Bray was part of the medical team in Lima in January of 2019.
Dr. Bray’s article will appear in an upcoming issue of Pediatric Anesthesia. In part he writes, “Incorporating clowns into the peri-operative team has helped improve the patients’ and families’ peri-operative experience.”
Photos include Dr. Bray with Duffy, Flora and Flossy in Peru; Dr. Bray (center holding child) with the entire medical team; and Dr. Bray in the surgical unit.
