Music brings emotion to any situation, and many rely on music and sound for therapeutic reasons. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Baylor’s Christina Reed saw a place for music therapy for obstetric and gynecology patients.
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 – 12, but this year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s especially important to recognize our nurses for the care they provide patients and their contributions to the mission of Baylor College of Medicine.
National Medical Assistants Week was celebrated Oct. 21 – 25 at Baylor College of Medicine, and across the country. These medical professionals play an important role, performing both administrative and clinical responsibilities.
