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.

NOMC & AF Present Parading Feet Initiative during the 2015 Carnival Season
Its pilot program, Parading Feet, connects band leaders, parents and students to foot care resources. “The goal is to help marching band students focus on their music instead of uncomfortable feet,” says volunteer program manager, Dr. Marc Lindy of Vancouver, Canada, a podiatrist, tuba player and leader of the Homegoing Brass Band.
“It’s bad – every year we march, we have great, talented students drop out from a parade because her/his feet were killing. With Parading Feet, you will see our students marching and smiling each parade, no excuses,” says Mr. Joshua Speight, band director for KIPP’s new music program, which is the pilot school for NOMC&AF’s initiative.
KIPP’s Central City Academy’s Tiger marching band received a generous donation of anti-blister socks from Wrightsock (North Carolina) and Formthotic insoles from Foot Science International (New Zealand) for each band member just in time to high-step into parade season.
