Our trainee clown doctor, DR Lao-Tan aka Oceans Tan attended a week-long training exchange with the Taiwanese clown doctors team, DR Red Nose. The training was held in Taipei, Taiwan from 15 September to 21 September 2018 and conducted by the trainers from Le Rire Medecin clown doctors program in France.
During the training, Oceans learned how to play with newborn babies, how to bring joy to kids in palliative stage and use musical improvisation in children wards.
The trainers, Caroline Simonds, Marianne Clarac and Vincent Pensuet generously shared their combined knowledge and experience working to bring joy to sick kids in hospitals in France since 1991.
We would like to thank DR Red Nose Taiwan for allowing one of our team members to get an opportunity to learn together with their team. We love you guys!
