The Healthcare Clowning International Meeting 2016 has three different committees: artistic, management and scientific. They are responsible for making sure that each specific area is represented and that the main questions are addressed and discussed, thus promoting the representation of diverse opinions that, all together, will help us in the construction of this community. Besides the three different committees responsible for the construction of the contents for the Meeting we have the Organization Commission and a list of Consultants with different fields of specialization.
