Performing Arts Health: A Tale of Two Needs
Guest Speaker: Kris Chesky and Sajid Surve are Co-Directors of the UNT Texas Center for Performing Arts Health (TCPAH)
Description: Performing arts health is a budding area of medicine and research. Performing artists have long been focused solely on their craft, ignoring the potential implications to their hearing, vocal, musculoskeletal, and mental health that arise from playing music, dancing, acting, or other performance. Similarly, the medical profession has historically ignored the unique medical problems of performing artists, opting instead to treat them as something other than the endurance athletes that they are. In both instances, a strong case can be made for the need for high-quality health information. In this talk, the speakers will discuss the historical problems, present situation, and future implications of informatics and performing arts health.
Speaker Bio: Kris Chesky and Sajid Surve are Co-Directors of the UNT Texas Center for Performing Arts Health (TCPAH), which has been at the forefront of research, education, and clinical care for the medical problems of performing artists for the past 20 years. The TCPAH is home to the world's first Ph.D. in Music with a Concentration in Performing Arts Health, the world's first Performing Arts Medicine physician fellowship, and recently partnered with the NNLM to publish Musician Health: A Primer and Resource Guide in February 2019.
