Cover Stories: Music in Medicine
The healing power of music, alumni health careers, and mental health resources at Curtis
Three articles in the Spring 2023 issue of Overtones highlight how the Curtis community is exploring connections between music and medicine. Our cover story, “Music’s Healing Powers,” focuses on recent scientific advances and examines ways alumni utilize music to treat conditions as diverse as chronic pain, PTSD, and neurological disorders.
In “Finding Harmony in Medical Careers,” two alumni share how their Curtis studies contributed to their future as anesthesiologists, and “Moment of Zen” features the school’s ongoing work to ensure that students have access to crucial mental health resources.
