Corazón: The Influence of Music Therapy on Stress Risk Factors Associated with Cardiovascular Disease in Latino Women

The Arts and Quality of Life Research Center received a $50,000 Provost Seed Grant to conduct a study that examines the effects of a specially designed music therapy program on stress, emotions, quality of life and lifestyle of Latino women.  This study represents a collaborative effort between music therapy and medical faculty as well as Temple University's Center for Excellence on Women’s Health, Research, Leadership and Advocacy. Drs. Cheryl Dileo (Professor of Music Therapy and Director of the Arts and Quality of Life Research Center), Sally Rosen (Associate Dean, Medical School and Director of the Center for Excellence on Women's Heath, Research, Leadership, and Advocacy), and Ellen Tedaldi (Professor of Internal Medicine and Director of the HIV Program) serve as principle investigators.
