New student organization combines music, service and medicine
Looking for a way to give back to your community and use your creative talents? The newly founded "Music Meets Medicine" allows students to volunteer by using their musical talents to help people in need.

This group has partnered with Hospice of the Valley to provide music therapy for dementia and palliative care patients. This location is easily accessible from campus (a five-minute drive). If interested, you must attend a Volunteer Training Orientation at Hospice of the Valley. The next orientation is scheduled Feb. 24
