Music Never Dies

by Jessica Ripka

Brianna LePage always wanted to study two things:  music and medicine.  It may seem that these two fields oppose each other and yet she has combined them for nearly twenty years.  Brianna works as a Music Therapist on the Cape where her work with the growing Alzheimer’s and Dementia population assumes a little known but much needed role in the care of a relentless disease.
