As we know very well here at FloDance, there is nothing in the world that brings as much hope, inspiration, love, and human connection as dancing. Even in the midst of COVID-19 and the difficulties that this global pandemic has caused, people are still dancing. And there's nobody who has demonstrated that better than Dr. Jason Campbell, who practices at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.
The 31-year-old's dancing has gone viral — and we mean that in a good way. Dr. Campbell has already been featured on everything from Fox & Friends to Good Morning America, and he has nearly a quarter-million followers on his TikTok page.
Dr. Campbell has been making the dance videos since early on in the crisis, back in February, and has brought an incredible amount of light and positivity to the world with his social media.
“I’m trying to reach youth,” he told Kristi Turnquist of The Oregonian. “Especially African American youth, to say let’s have fun. One day you’re definitely going to take your job seriously, bit you don’t have to take yourself too seriously.”
In honor of Dr. Campbell and to celebrate the amazing force that is dance, we decided to look at some of our favorites from his social media. We hope you enjoy them and find as much inspiration and positivity as we did in them!

A throwback reminder with your favorite nurse—Nurse Grace—that a smile, a laugh or an ear to listen are healing powers. These are just a few of the many powers that nurses possess. They truly are superheroes who do not wear capes! @Usher #NursesDay2020 #NursesWeek pic.twitter.com/8aE8k8YbV7— Jason “TikTok Doc” Campbell MD (@DrJCoftheDC) May 6, 2020
