Performing Arts Health Resources

The Mead Witter School of Music cares about your health – both mentally and physically. We urge students, faculty and staff to avail themselves of the health and safety-related services, activities and information provided by the University of Wisconsin-Madison and surrounding organizations.

In an effort to educate students, staff, and community members of the risks they encounter and the resources to which they have access, the Mead Witter School of Music has partnered with UW Health’s Performing Arts Medicine Program.

Beyond this website and the information it contains, an informative and educational workshop will take place on campus with visiting lecturers from UW Health and University Health Services. Stay tuned for more information!
