Good Medicine is a theater company with a mission to bring transformational joy to humans of all ages. Primarily, GMP is a health care theater company as their year-round signature program brings comedic performers bedside to nursing homes and pediatric patients. The comedic performers use physical comedy, improvisation, music, the circus arts and more to help relieve anxiety, isolation and sadness often found in the medical environment. GMP's tagline is "Find Your Joy." But it's not so much that the performers bring the joy, but act as a catalyst for the residents and kiddos to find their joy that lives inside all of us.
GMP currently serves several nursing homes in central Ohio and has partnered with several non-profits and Nationwide Children's Hospital to reach families of hospitalized kids who need us most. Your donation goes directly to this programming which serves about 700 seniors and 300 children a year.
"I have seen this group bring out a light in people who are typically quiet and do not speak...I never want to see a time when the Good Medicine Specialists are not at our facility.” – Activities Director, Heartland of Westerville Senior Living
