Importance of Health Communications
FACT: Communications is one of the most important tools in our nation’s healthcare system. It is required on all service levels ranging from patient-doctor, pharmacist-patient, parent-child, teacher-student, and system-public communications.
The Groovy Pyramid mission is to develop new applications for music-based health communications.
Music-Based Health Communications
DEFINITION: The use of melody, instrumentation, and vocal harmony to enhance the presentation and delivery of health education to individuals and communities.
