Dogwood Village is pleased to announce that it is a part of the National Music and Memory Initiative which is a research study through George Mason University. Music and Memory is a project which is sponsored by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Service with use of funds approved by Center or Medicare and Medicaid Services.
