Patch Adams, a “Scientist of Joy”, and Global Health and Humanitarian Summit

Was on the phone today with the doctor who the movie “Patch Adams” was based on.
He’s working on an event called the Global Health & Humanitarian Summit at Emory University– which is intended to rival the Global Economic Summit. 🙂

Here is a short video where he talks about contemplating suicide, and what he decided to do with his life instead…

?”I made a decision to be a Scientist of Joy for the rest of my life, and then out of my science background, I decided to be a doctor for the poor. And the other decision had to do with myself, and how I could design myself into the best possible instrument of peace.” ~Patch Adams
