Lake Hospital System will present results of the study in 2012 at the annual Health Symposium sponsored by the Diabetes Association of Greater Cleveland.
"Music therapy research is our signature program at the Kulas Foundation. We're thrilled to support the groundbreaking music therapy research being conducted at Lake Hospital System with patients who have diabetes," said Nancy McCann, president of the Kulas Foundation.
The Kulas Foundation, founded in 1937 by Cleveland music patrons Elroy John Kulas and his wife Fynette Hill Kulas, is one of the few philanthropic organizations in Northeast Ohio that focuses on music appreciation and music education. The Kulas Foundation is a leader among foundations for funding scientific music therapy research.
Individuals, ages 30-85, with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes (if covered by third party insurance) are eligible to participate in the study. Individuals with gestational diabetes or other types will be excluded. Other exclusions include dementia and severe hearing loss. Each participant will receive a $25 gas card as a stipend following completion of the study, as well as a therapeutic music compact disc recording.
