In 2016, Renée Fleming was appointed Artistic Advisor for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Seeking to champion the work being done nationally—both in the medical community and within the arts world—at the intersection of health and the arts, Renée has spearheaded the first ongoing collaboration between America’s national cultural center and its largest health research institute, the National Institutes of Health.

Inspired by this work, Renée has created a presentation called Music and the Mind, exploring the power of music as it relates to health and the brain. Topics include childhood development, music therapy, and cognitive neuroscience. Renée has presented Music and the Mind in more than 45 cities around the world, from Boston to Beijing, delivering the prestigious Compton Lecture at MIT, and earning Research America’s Rosenfeld Award for Impact on Public Opinion.

For the Amelia Island presentation, Ms. Fleming will be joined by Dr. Regis Haid, President of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, former Emory School of Medicine Pediatric Neu-rologist Dr. Nicolas Krawiecki, renowned inter-ventional neuroradiologist, Dr. Ajay Wakhloo, and Olivia Hoblit, founder of the Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation. The event is complimentary but does require a reservation.
