dear al bregman,
i've known kevin for many years, since i was coordinator of music
& arts for conted at concordia back in the 70's.

i'm now with the arizona cancer center at the university of
arizona -- as a long-term cancer survivor myself; as a
psychotherapist (gestalt); and, as you see below, on staff in the
office of the director.

currently i've been putting together concerts in the patient
waiting room.  we want to measure actual biological markers re
stress, effects on cancer patients, particularly in regard to
IL-6 and cytokines after listening to music.  so far i've not
come up with any definitive research.  most is qualitative.

do you or does anyone there have any info on current research in
this area.  kev says that your work is auditory psychology.

any suggestions would be appreciated; negative info is as good as

many thanks,
marcia loynd
