In authenticity is our modern form of plague: it kills life. At time when the power of technology makes possible undreamed--of interventions in the diseases of mankind, the very relationship between doctor and patients has become a battleground. Meet Hunter D. "Patch" Adams, M.D., the Clown. A social revolutionary and the one-man show who believes in "horse and buggy" medicine and never charges his patients, his medical career has been devoted to giving away health care one of the most expensive things in America for free. In 1971, Adams and a few colleagues founded the Gesundheit Institute, a forty-bed free hospital on 310 acres in a medically under-served area in northern West Virginia, utilizing an "unorthodox" approach to medicine: laughter, humor, the philosophy of listening, not just hearing, and doctor and patient as intimate, respecting partners

Art has been used over the centuries to help people accept a medical condition they cannot change or to provide a spiritual lift during difficult times. But, increasingly, the arts are being used in a scientifically ordered manner to improve health in specific ways. Studies have shown that arts therapy can reduce pain, improve the health of pre-term babies, decrease the severity of headaches, and improve speech of people who have had strokes. This program profiles several examples, including a dance that evolved out of dealing with AIDS, murals in a children's cancer clinic, a physician who is also a professional clown, music therapy for autistic children, and a woman with manic-depressive illness who uses painting as therapy
