The Music and Medicine series is a collaboration between the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and the UCLA Integrative East-West Musician Wellness Program, bringing doctors from the world-renowned UCLA Health System together with UCLA student and faculty musicians. The initiative seeks to enhance understanding and destigmatize common health issues, increase awareness of the outstanding medical resources available, reduce illness and injury, and ultimately improve the lives of all musicians. Most events will combine talks from expert physicians with musical performances and are free and open to the public.
