Music professor set to lead workshop



Dr. David Akombo, faculty fellow in the College of Liberal Arts, will give a lecture called “Musical Interventions for Traumatized Children and Teens” and lead a workshop for music educators and healthcare providers in Jamaica on March 10.

“It is a great honor and privilege for me, and I would say, for the Department of Music and the College of Liberal Arts, and Jackson State, to be included in the list of other international presenters at this event. I am humbled and will endeavor to engage the attendees as I give them my best,” said Akombo, who also is a professor of music.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with Survivors Unlimited, a Jamaican UNICEF-funded program that addresses the emotional and mental health issues of school-age children.
