Flutist Wanting to Help/Collaborate

I am a professional flutist very excited about attending the NFA Annual Convention in Washington, DC, this August and meeting Dr. Michael Weinstein. I interviewed him via email regarding my undergraduate thesis at Meredith College, where I was a Music Performance major suffering through tendonitis and cubital tunnel issues as well as depression. I would love to thank him and PAMA for all they do, and know how I can get involved as an advocate for performing artists' health. I have considered expanding my thesis into a resource for flutists but do not know if this is something that has already been done or would benefit from further collaboration with PAMA members.

Hello Andrea!

My name is Melissa Hatheway, and I am the Chair of the Young Professionals Committee within PAMA. I am also a music educator in the DFW area, as well as a PAM researcher in marching band/drum corps. Regarding your thesis and research, I would encourage you to check the Medical Problems for Performing Artists (MPPA) journal. There is a portal to search the current and past issues on the PAMA website! In regards to collaboration with PAMA members, I would encourage you to look through the PAMA member directory, which lists research interests as well as contact information, and to attend the Summer Symposium in NYC if you are able to!

If you are interested in becoming more involved in PAMA, I would highly encourage you to join the Young Professionals Committee. It is a great way to network with other professionals new to the field and get involved in the organization. If you are interested, please send me an email at melissa.hatheway@gmail.com.
