Mountain States Health Alliance's Volunteer Music Program

Nominated by Dr. Aruna Kilaru

Description: Ha-Jung Grace Sung has been volunteering with the MSHA Volunteer Music Program since November of 2011. The Volunteer Music Program at the Johnson City Medical Center begins every Sunday afternoon. Musicians perform for the patients and staff, not only in the public, but also individually by request. Escorts take the musicians to a suitable area to perform and check the proper circumstances with nurses and the staff before performances. They share the music with patients, their families and the hospital staff to help them release stress and raise spirits.
