The Music and Medicine Initiative (MAMI)


The Music and Medicine Initiative at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus provides 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.


  • HEALING: Expanding the arts community at AMC 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 including the College of Music at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
  • 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.
