Byte-Size Digital Health
23rd June 2014, 5:30pm – 8:30pm
What is Digital Health, and what does it mean for patients, healthcare professionals and researchers? In this interactive evening session we will be discovering how new technology and data can affect the way we understand and provide healthcare, and how new technologies can improve human wellbeing. This session aims to inspire and inform our understanding of digital health, as well as providing a brief introduction to the activities taking place as part of the UCL Festival for Digital Health.
‘Speed-dating’ style, there will be lots of opportunity for both informal chats and networking. You will be invited to explore topics from gamification to global health, and human error to healthcare funding. Our partners and sponsors will have stands throughout the Roberts Foyer – have a chat with them!
