The Osher Center for Integrative Health at UC (via UC Health Integrative Medicine) is partnering with with Stacy Sims and TheWell to implement a Mindful Music program with support from the Harold G. Schott Foundation. Mindful Music is currently offered at UC Health in the MS infusion suite, via the UC Health Associate Wellness program on the LINK, with plans to expand to UC Medical Center inpatient services in Fall 2020.
In early 2020, TheWell collaborated with UC Health's Integrative Medicine to bring Mindful Music to patients and caregivers in the infusion suite and waiting areas of the UC Health Gardner Neuroscience Institute.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health care world shifted to testing, preparedness and staff well-being. The Mindful Music program was able to pivot to provide virtual playlists for employee well-being. Instructions on how to access playlists, that soothe your mind, body and spirit with mindfulness and classical music, poetry and guided meditation, created especially for UC Health by The Well.World, in partnership with Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Opera and other arts organizations.
