Digital Health Everywhere Symposium Feb. 23
The Health Sciences Library (HSL) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will host Digital Health Everywhere; a symposium that will highlight a wide range of current and emerging trends in digital health.
The speakers will be UNC researchers, students, and library staff, plus representatives from industry, government, and non-profits. Topics include “Augmented Reality Games for UNC Children’s Hospital,” “New Frontiers of Digital Health Research” and “Digital Health Initiatives at the HSL.” For a complete schedule of topics and presenters, see http://hsl.lib.unc.edu/dhsymposium.
Digital health is a growing area of research, clinical care, and education. New devices, mobile apps, software, and data sources are radically changing the future of medicine. Digital Health Everywhere seeks to explore this transformation, as well as areas like humanities and social sciences, the international context, cultural differences, and the interplay between academic work and the world of industry and government.

The mission of the HSL is to be an indispensable partner in connecting people with knowledge and information to help make informed health care decisions, ensure quality health care, teach and learn effectively, and conduct vital research that contributes to the work of the university and our community. As one of the nation’s leading health affairs libraries, it serves as the primary library for the University’s schools of dentistry, medicine (including allied health sciences), nursing, pharmacy, and public health. It also serves the UNC Medical Center and the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (NC AHEC); a statewide program for clinical education and health services.
