Live Music Now at the Royal Society of Medicine – 16 November 2015
LMN wants to bring together partners from across the important field of music and wellbeing, to create new collaborations, and ensure that the best music and musicians are available to everyone in society, regardless of their circumstances.
On Monday 16 November, Live Music Now and the Royal Society of Medicine welcomed a host of leading academics, doctors and practitioners from around the world to the RSM’s building in London. These experts had gathered to consider the evidence about music interventions in neurological disorders of older people. It was a fascinating and inspiring day, as we hope the videos of the presentations below demonstrate.
