Email this Post Print this Post

One of the biggest supporters of Texas music is gone. A lady who worked to bring health care to thousands of Austin musicians has died.

Robin Shivers died in her sleep Monday night, according to a spokesperson for the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, an organization Shivers helped create.  More than 1,400 hundred Austin-area musicians received low-cost health care as a result of HAAM. It was formed in 2005, following the efforts of Shivers and Diana Resnick of the Seton family of hospitals.

The cause of death has not yet been determined. For more information, visit the Austin American Statesman at http://www.statesman.com/blogs/content/shared-gen/blogs/austin/music/entries/2009/10/27/a_great_friend_of_austin_music.html?cxntfid=blogs_austin_music_source.
