Health and Wellness Resources

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Glenn Korff School of Music (GKSOM) cares about the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff.  It is important for individuals to consider how their life choices can impact their health and musical/choreographic performance.  The materials provided below are informational in nature and intended to provide a broad introduction to the occupational health concerns of musicians and dancers. These advisory documents are jointly authored by the Performing Arts Medicine Association, the National Association of Schools of Music, and the National Association of Schools of Dance. This information is not intended to substitute for the expertise of health care professionals. We encourage all GKSOM faculty, staff, and students to seek professional healthcare advice regarding specific concerns regarding health or wellbeing. The links below will direct the reader to health care resources on campus and beyond.

The GKSOM maintains a standing faculty committee, the Committee on Health & Wellness, that works to generate and disseminate materials on health, safety, and wellness to students, faculty, and staff. It also is charged to attend to issues of health and injury prevention across our campus in respect to physical spaces, and the equipment and technology in those spaces, used by students, faculty, and staff.
