Music is a shared interest that ties many of us together within and across communities and cultures. On Wednesday, October 11, we’ll be sitting down with psychotherapist and certified music therapist Dr. SarahRose Black to hear about how music therapy can be incorporated into health care plans, who can qualify, and its potential to transform end-of-life care.

She is a graduate intern supervisor at Wilfrid Laurier University and in September of 2023, she will be an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto. SarahRose is the Editor in Chief of the Canadian Journal of Music Therapy, and her research focuses on music therapy and medically assisted dying, music and psilocybin use in advanced cancer care, and music therapy for adolescents and young adults with cancer.
