Event Details

Join the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM), UC San Francisco Memory and Aging Center (UCSF MAC) and Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association, in an exchange on jazz, equity and brain health.

This event will explore othering and belonging through the lens of jazz music and neuroscience; building community through jazz and brain health equity; and the power of empathy, listening, and inclusion in jazz and dementia work. Presenters will consider the ideas of resilience, empathy, improvisation, equity, inclusion, belonging—as well as the social and genetic determinants of brain health—and how they relate to jazz, a musical genre that welcomes and celebrates individual diversity and freedom.

This is the fourth event in a series produced by SFCM, UCSF MAC and GBHI. It will take place during Addressing Health Disparities, a virtual conference hosted by the Alzheimer's Association.
