The free health insurance workshops follow “Heal The Music Day,” an effort to raise awareness and support for the emergency and ongoing medical needs of our country’s creative community, 76% of whom are self-employed or part of a small business. The majority don’t have access to group health benefits and, in many instances, have limited and unpredictable resources. Music Health Alliance’s free services range from access to doctors and hospitals, diagnostic services, medicine, health insurance and finding financial assistance during times of illness.

To participate in “Heal The Music Day,” members of the music community — including artists, songwriters, producers, publishers, publicists, promoters, business managers, record label executives, booking agents, attorneys, venues, stylists and more — can pledge a percentage of their single day earnings to support the lifesaving services provided by Music Health Alliance. Donate now at HealTheMusic.com or checks can be mailed to Music Health Alliance at 2737 Larmon Dr., Nashville, TN 37204. Funds raised during “Heal The Music Day” support the non-profit’s free services, advocacy, education and preventative care initiatives. Learn more at HealTheMusic.com.
