Studies report the benefits of music on health - from decreasing pain to improving dementia. The musicians who create, perform, and make this "medicine" accessible are a special type of healer, but who is healing the musician? Musicians experience a myriad of occupational-related health problems, causing many to shorten their careers or not even start them. In this uncertain time of healthcare accessibility, learn how people and organizations are coming together to make healthcare accessible to the musician community so that they are able to make the music that benefits us all.
