Short biography and a description of your interest(s) in music and health: 
During my personal health challenges, I discovered the value and effectiveness of art and music as a way to relieve pain and anxiety throughout the treatment process.
As a global health advisor, the interconnectedness of health and a variety of non-health factors became an important factor in galvanizing support for and developing
appropriate answers to addressing a variety of health challenges, including memory and dementia, cancer, pain, anxiety, heart and blood pressure problems, etc. It is an effective and
non-drug related intervention that helps people rise above and beyond the pain and suffering from otherwise serious and debilitating problems. It lifts spirits, mental outlook, positivity,
and other factors that can help to bring successful and positive results in health status and conquering health conditions and problems with less use of prescription painkillers.
Collaboration Interests: 
Interested in any collaborations which support a better understanding and use of art/music and mental and physical healing.
