Meet the Trustees

Music for my Mind has the backing of a committed and influential Board, chaired by the Founder, Professor Keith McAdam, who witnessed first-hand, the effect that music and creativity can have on wellbeing and quality of life in people living with HIV in a clinic in Uganda, where he was the foundation director.  His background in clinical medicine and research has helped us envision a step by step process to achieve our goal, working with cross-disciplinary collaborators.
