Queens receives a grant to provide music therapy to patients at The Levine Cancer Institute
Queens' Music Therapy Department was awarded a LiveSTRONG Community Impact Grant that will enable the department to provide music therapy to patients who are being treated in the blood and marrow transplant unit and the chemotherapy infusion department at The Levine Cancer Institute.
The funds will allow Queens to have an on-site music therapist at The Levine Cancer Institute for 48 weeks. In addition, funds will be used to purchase supplies for the program (instruments, technology, etc.).
As part of this new program, music therapy majors will be able to intern at The Levine Cancer Institute. Each student must spend 1040 hours in supervised on-the-job training once the undergraduate coursework is completed.
Queens competed against many other organizations for the grant money and won after receiving the most online votes.
