2024 Lifestyle Medicine & Wellness Series: Music as Medicine (no cost)

According to a growing body of research, listening to or making music affects the brain in ways that may help promote health and manage disease symptoms. Performing or listening to music activates a variety of structures in the brain that are involved in thinking, sensation, movement, and emotion. This type of brain activity may have physical and psychological benefits.
