How can music help support mental health in patients with cancer and the development of cancer-fighting solutions?

“We currently have over 15 million people in the United States with cancer, and by 2030, there will be far many more. Mental health needs to be addressed for all those patients as they live with a disease that they have to constantly monitor.”

In this Mental Health Minute video, Mona Jhaveri, PhD, of Music Beats Cancer discusses the under-researched area of mental health in patients with cancer and how Music Beats Cancer uses music to drive innovations that support the development of cancer-fighting solutions.

Dr Jhaveri is the founder and director of Music Beats Cancer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the “Valley of Death,” or the growing gap in funding that constraints the translation of cancer research discoveries into clinical applications.
