The mission of MAMI is to provide students, faculty, staff, patients and community members with a network and a resource for understanding and using music as a conduit to advance healthcare, education, and research. The goals are three:
Healing: Expanding the arts community on the Anschutz Medical Campus by creating a network and identifying resources for all musicians in order to support and nurture their work; providing music in hospitals and clinics for patients and their families.
Outreach: Offering free and open performances for the community; collaborating with artists in the greater Denver and Aurora communities.
Education & Research: Organizing and presenting lectures and workshops; seeking opportunities for research.
MAMI is supported by a Governing Board that includes faculty sponsors, choir and orchestra directors and officers, and student/staff/faculty members-at-large. Please contact Dr. Tess Jones for more information.
The Music and Medicine Initiative (MAMI) Fund supports the understanding and use of music to advance healthcare, education and research. Our outreach programs are the AMC Choir and Orchestra.
