Dr. Taylor’s Recent Publications and Upcoming Keynote Address

The text of an interview with Dr. Dale Taylor has just been published by the Medical Society of Wisconsin in the December 16, 2015 issue of the Honoring Choices Wisconsin Newsletter. In the interview, Dr. Taylor discusses the importance of including music choices in Advance Care Planning for later use in Music & Memory or Music Therapy programming. He emphasizes the value of gathering this information before a person exhibits serious dementia issues or other problems involving impaired memory. The same article was picked up and featured in the December 17, 2015 issue of the Honoring Choices Minnesota Newsletter which was circulated to all Honoring Choices organizations nationwide.

Dr. Taylor is a member of the American Music Therapy Association’s Music & Memory Work Group, Secretary of the Wisconsin Board on Aging and Long Term Care, and presents webinars on music and brain function for staff working to implement Music & Memory protocols in long term care facilities regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Ohio Department of Aging. Dr. Taylor also is scheduled to deliver a Keynote Address in February for a worldwide audience of music therapists attending the 2016 Online Conference for Music Therapy.
