Melanie Wong is a current medical student at McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, Class of 2023. Her interest in music therapy was born during her time in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program, where she had the wonderful opportunity to take Rachael Finnerty's Introduction to Music Therapy and Music Therapy Research courses. Since then, she has made contributions to various Music Therapy Academy research projects under the supervision of Rachael and Annilee Baron. Most recently, she has completed a systematic review investigating the biomarkers of psychological stress in music-based and music therapy interventions. Throughout her future studies, Melanie is very eager to continue to bridge the gap between music therapy and medicine!
