Meredith and Lepak-Gallagher invited to speak at Door County Caregiver Conference
Profs. Sarah Meredith (Music) and Dean Susan Lepak-Gallagher (Nursing) were invited to the Door County Caregiver Conference “Engaging Minds, Empowering Success” on Nov. 15, 2019 at the Aging and Disability Resource Center in Sturgeon Bay. They presented on the “Healing Power of Music” to two groups of caregivers who learned how music can be used to enrich the lives of those with a health condition and how it can be part of taking care of themselves. Various types of music and characteristics of music (e.g., tempo, rhythm) were given as examples for impacting general well-being and specific health conditions (e.g., dementia, Parkinson’s disease).
