It’s Time to Get ‘Outside’ and Enjoy the LMA

Listen to live music, play a quick game of ping-pong with co-workers, savor treats from local food trucks, enjoy a free yoga class or relax with a visiting animal. Everyone deserves to take a break, socialize and play outside. The “Outside” program, which takes place across the Longwood Medical Area, will run through the last week of September. Events near the Brigham are hosted outside the Hale Building for Transformative Medicine, Countway Courtyard (behind Shattuck Street) and Stoneman Centennial Park. View the schedule of events and locations.
