Sound Health Network - January 26

Please join us this Tuesday afternoon (5 pm Eastern/2 pm Pacific) for a one hour virtual launch event of Sound Health Network. The Sound Health Network (SHN) is a partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts with the University of California, San Francisco in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Renée Fleming, the center’s artistic advisor. SHN will promote research and public awareness about the impact of music on health and wellness.

Charles Limb, MD will be co-directing the event along with Julene Johnson, PhD. This 60-minute event will feature several world-class musicians with an interest in the intersection of music and health, such as Esperanza Spalding, Renée Fleming, and Quetzal Flores. Interdisciplinary conversations with key leaders will explore how music can provide insights into brain functioning, reduce social isolation, promote community solidarity, and influence health. The launch will also showcase resources and services that the network will provide on its new website on an ongoing basis.
