This is the story of diverse people who have participated in the Healing Through Memory and Objects program of the Museum of AIDS in Africa (South Africa); #Wordsthatheal campaign of the Al Maktoum Hospital Museum (Dubai); and the Physiotherapy Art Tour and Pre-op Art Distraction programs in Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (London). Using video, live conversation, social media and audience participation, we share some measurable and life-changing ways these museums are advancing personal health and well-being.

This session will be simultaneously interpreted in Mandarin and Spanish.
