Swan Receives 2013 Missouri Music Therapy Advocate Award
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Rep. Kathryn Swan (R-Cape Girardeau) has received the 2013 Missouri Music Therapy Advocate Award at the 2nd Annual Missouri Music Therapy Institute, recently held in Columbia, Missouri. She was honored for her sponsorship of a House resolution recognizing the value of music therapy as a valid health care service. Swan filed HCR33 in response to a need expressed by local music therapists to recognize music therapy as a valid and important health care service and the importance of licensure of music therapists in the state of Missouri.
The event was hosted by the Kansas City Metro Music Therapists and the St. Louis Music Therapy Association, Inc., attracting music therapists from across the state for networking and education.
