Music Health Alliance And Health:Further Team Up For Annual Festival

Music Health Alliance, the music industry’s healthcare advocate, will partner with Health:Further for its annual Health:Further Festival at the Music City Center in Nashville August 22 – 25, 2017. The annual gathering brings together over 2,000 of the brightest minds in healthcare innovation focused on improving the industry and building a healthier future.

The new partnership is designed to showcase the relationship between two of Nashville’s primary industries, music and healthcare, while also expanding opportunities for the creative community to attend the Festival. MHA and Health:Further will collaborate on a scholarship to provide complimentary Festival passes to students and healthcare practitioners. MHA will also help program components of the Festival, which will include a keynote address and entertainment by Brenda Lee, headlined by Delbert McClinton, that will be staged throughout the event.

A portion of the festival’s proceeds will be donated exclusively to Music Health Alliance to continue its services for the more than 56,000 people who make a living in the music industry, 76% of whom are self-employed or part of small business.

“Music Health Alliance is thrilled to partner with Health:Further in this one-of-a-kind event,” said Music Health Alliance Founder Tatum Allsep. “The forward-thinkers in the Health:Further community are committed to developing the most accessible, affordable and quality healthcare landscape of tomorrow and at MHA we believe this kind of innovative and creative thinking is vital to ensure that the ‘Music’ in Music City stays alive and well.”

“Music Health Alliance is a remarkable organization providing critical healthcare services to the music industry, one of Nashville’s largest professional communities,” said Marcus Whitney, CEO & Co-Founder of Health:Further. “The work they do towards making health accessible to musicians aligns closely with our vision at Health:Further, and we could not be more proud to support them in this effort.”
