I was saddened to hear of Dr. Alice Brandfonbrener’s passing last month. Dr. Brandfonbrener was a guest on my podcast in 2009. I had seen her name on medical journal articles for years and I was a bit starstruck when she agreed to be interviewed. However, she was a down to earth and engaging interviewee, passionate and practical about performing arts medicine.
She is a pioneer in the performing arts medicine field, and will be missed greatly. I hope you enjoy revisiting her interview in her honor.
