Trust Room
Prof. Amelia Oldfield will be taking us through some light theory of using music as medicine, as well as showing excerpts from her new documentary, where children with autism spectrum disorder and their families were interviewed twice on their experiences with this therapy, 16 years apart.

Please note this event is now taking place in the TRUST ROOM, and not in the Gordon Cameron Lecture Theatre as previously advertised.

The Fitzwilliam College Medical and Veterinary Society's first talk of term will be less technical than usual, and should be accessible to anyone with an interest in music, psychology, medicine, science, in any combination.
