He has lectured at 90 Medical Schools here in the United States and in Universities and Medical Schools in over 80 countries.  For 33 years, Gesundheit! has lead clown trips, known as Global Outreach (up to 9 per year) to the most impoverished communities, war zones, refugee camps, and disaster areas. People representing 40 countries, ages 3-88 have clowned. Six years ago, they began to include building clinics, and schools. Patch’s dedication toward clowning in hospitals has sparked a movement that now has clown groups in 120 countries.
