"MUSIC AS MEDICINE"

A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.

Proverbs 17:22


When Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011, he didn't stop making
music, in fact, he went on tour. Music brought him joy, meaning, and purpose.
His doctors had no doubt that his persistence in the musical arena helped to
preserve intellectual functioning far longer than would have been expected.  In
the end, music lifted our spirits and gave us ways to connect with Glen when
words could no longer reach him.  Music also helped me overcome the crushing
depression of losing my husband to Alzheimer’s.   -Kim Campbell

The Kim & Glen Campbell Foundation will promote the use of music as
medicine to alleviate depression, manage behaviors, boost the immune system,
improve cognition, and alter the brain chemistry associated with well-being and
stress reduction, augmenting or reducing the need for pharmacological
interventions and improving the lives of people with cognitive impairment and
their caregivers.

Take one Mozart, two Righteous Brothers, four Beatles, and a Glen Campbell
and call me in the morning!


The 1st Annual Glen Campbell Memorial Celebrity Golf Outing will help fund
the research of Daniel J. Levitin: Neuroscientist, Musician, Author of This is
Your Brain On Music, and one of the world’s leading research scientists
studying music and its effects on the brain.  Dr. Levitin is working on a new
book, The Aging Brain, which covers Alzheimer’s and other diseases of the
brain.


Through the research of Dr. Daniel J. Levitin, and the guidance and generosity of
Arthur Kelm (Universal Music Group/Ground One), David Dolby (Dolby
Laboratories), and other partners, the Kim and Glen Campbell Foundation is
working to design and build Goodtime Theaters in Memory Care communities
across the country, bringing music as medicine to enhance the brain health of
people with cognitive impairment and their caregivers.
