Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts presents: Music & Medicine Lecture-Concert
OCTOBER 27 AT 7PM
This Event is Free ¬– Tickets Required.
Dr. Kamal Chémali, Sentara Neurologist, and French pianist Prisca Benoit, Sentara Artist-in-Residence, will host a special 90-minute lecture-concert highlighting the beneficial and therapeutic effects of music on health and disease.
Music has a powerful therapeutic effect on the body. Scientific research has proven that the body benefits when music is played. Through music, parts of the brain damaged by disease can be reactivated. Patients, whose language has been affected by stroke, often improve when music is added to their treatment. Music can also improve blood pressure, pain levels, anxiety and cognition.
