Amy Smith, M.A., MT-BC, CCLS, a board-certified music therapist at Texas Children’s Hospital, received the prestigious 2014 Arthur Flagler Fultz Research Grant from the American Music Therapy Association. The grant will support Smith’s study, “The Effects of Live Contingent Singing on Preterm Neonates with Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia,” which will examine the impact of a live music therapy intervention on the physiologic and behavioral responses of preterm infants with a chronic lung condition. The results from the study will provide important information on the potential impact of music therapy on the overall wellbeing of infants with chronic and long-term hospitalization needs.
