CLOWNING WITH PATCH ADAMS IS TOPIC OF NCLL PROGRAM

MARQUETTE - Bill Waters of Marquette accompanied Dr. Patch Adams to Siberia in 2001. He will share stories of this clowning adventure and discuss the importance of not taking life too seriously in the next program offered by the Northern Center for Lifelong Learning.

It is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, in the Peter White Library Community Room. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Adams is a non-traditional physician whose unique approach to health care was portrayed in the popular movie Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams. Waters was one of 40 individuals selected to attend a Clowning School and then travel with Adams as he worked with health care professionals in China and Siberia.

Waters recently retired from Northern Michigan University, where he was a professor in the criminal justice department. He has presented workshops to law enforcement and other groups on the value of humor in the workplace.
