The Future of Digital Health
What needs to be done?
Rapidly evolving digital technology and data science have started to transform our lifestyles. In the context of our health, they have been partially successful in promoting our biological health, so that we might live on to beyond 100 years old. Advanced technologies have enabled us to predict disease onsets early, meaning that there is room to take action and modify lifestyles to postpone or escape from diseases on an individual basis.
But are we happy with what we have achieved already? Definitely not!
We would like to have the technologies as unobtrusive as possible, and to have them not interrupting our lives. We would like to have digital health technologies to support our lives, thus staying not only clinically healthy but also vital and actively participating in society. In this seminar we will discuss future perspectives of how digital technology can improve our lives.
PUBLIC DISCUSSION VIA LIVESTREAM AND ON-SITE AT THE BERLIN SCIENCE WEEK CAMPUS.
This event can be attended digitally via livestream or in-person with a limited on-site audience at the Museum of Natural History.
Livestream: Shortly before the event begins, the stream will be made available on this site. Add the event to your favourites and receive a reminder via email.
On-Site: If you would like to attend the event on-site, please book your spot by 04 November here.
Due to the current situation, we are required to ask for the contact information of each person entering the Museum of Natural History in accordance with the Protection Against Infection Act. We therefore require the following data from all persons who register: First name, last name, address, telephone number and email address.
On-site the protective and hygienic measures of the Museum of Natural History apply. The so-called 3G rule (for „geimpft, genesen oder getestet“, i.e. „vaccinated, recovered or tested“) will be applied: Anyone who is not fully vaccinated or is not considered recovered will be required to provide a recent negative Covid-19 test. Visiting the event is permitted with a medical face mask only.
The registration data will be stored by the Tohoku University Sendai for the purpose of organizing the event as well as for any subsequent contact follow-up and will also be shared with the organizers of Berlin Science Week and the Museum of Natural History for this purpose.
