About Jasmin Uglow & Humanity in Music

Jasmin Uglow is a Canadian musician and the founder of the non-profit organization, Humanity in Music. Jasmin has been personally touched by Alzheimer’s as her father was diagnosed and passed away from dementia. After his passing, Jasmin took her and her father’s shared bond of music and gained renewed meaning for their passions. Through her challenges as a full-time caregiver, she recognized the extraordinary, positive effects music has on patients and caregivers alike.

Jasmin hopes that through her music and Humanity in Music, she can encourage Canadians to give back, support musical efforts, and make a change for those impacted by dementia now, and in the future.

For more information, please contact Melinda Good, Special Events Coordinator at mgood@alz.to.
