Nose to Nose Visits
On March 25, 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Clown Foundation created a brand new online therapeutic service : the “Nose to Nose Visits.”
Thanks to this burst of creativity, the Dr. Clowns were able to connect virtually with the patients, students and seniors they used to visit on a weekly basis.

By making an appointment, children will be able to have a 10-15 minute personalized visit with a duo of clown-doctors via a very simple video conferencing platform.
Dr. Clown Online Visits in regular elementary schools in Quebec
In the fall of 2020, we decided to offer our service to all regular elementary schools in the province. Due to all the new restrictive measures, the daily stability of the school's environment was shaken. And this can be very troubling for children. Thus, we quickly realized that there was a huge need for our therapeutic approach in elementary schools.
Being sensitive to the well-being of all young students, to the anxiety and the stress that the pandemic can cause, it was important for us to make sure that the therapeutic benefits of our approach and the great expertise of our artists was accessible to as many people as possible.
If you are a teacher, and would like to learn more about this new program, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be our pleasure to answer all of your questions.
