About NOMC

Since 1998, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic (NOMC) has been dedicated to keeping New Orleans' performers alive in body, mind, and spirit by providing comprehensive health care and mental health/social services. As the "medical home" for more than 2,500 local musicians and tradition bearers, the NOMC's Culture of Caring Model provides cost-efficient access to high quality healthcare and wellness programs for our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

The New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) evolved from NOMC following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to expand its mission and promise to keep New Orleans music alive by sustaining New Orleans' traditional music cultures through our Gig Fund and our Emergency Fund.

  • HEALTH AND WELLNESS FOR BARTENDERS 2015 PARTNERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT

    Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 4.49.33 PM

    Working the long, late hours that bartending and service careers demand, it’s easy to forget about your health. In 2015, The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society and the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation, two organizations dedicated to preserving the unique culture of our city, are teaming up for a yearlong initiative to promote health and wellness among New Orleans’ service community. This special program will include health events, educational seminars, group classes and much more, all developed to address the specific health challenges of working in the service industry. Together we want to keep everyone who works in our legendary clubs, bars and restaurants healthy so they can keep serving up an important part of our local culture.
