In this episode, we speak with Dr. Carlos Chirinos, a clinical music and global health associate professor at NYU. His research is at the intersection of public health, communication, and music, looking at how media narratives driven by music artists and music-based interventions contribute to engaging communities in disease prevention and control in the context of existing or potential health emergencies. He has been a key consultant for radio and music projects in Africa with funding from the World Bank, USAID, IDRC, and the Wellcome Trust. In 2015, Dr. Chirinos received an award from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Defense, and USAID, to develop Africa Stop Ebola, a global music campaign to raise awareness about Ebola in West Africa.
