In 2016, twenty-one wards and small hospitals introduced Music & Memory, a program of using personalised playlists of music, for patients in NSW Health. The effects have been captured in a short film, Music & Memory for Health. This event will feature the film with a panel discussion about the relationship between our brain, our bodies and music.
