Digital Health Symposium Call for Posters!

By Linda Johnsen January 31, 2018

Submit your abstract now to get a chance to present your work at the first Digital Health Symposium at UNC’s Health Sciences Library.

The theme of the event is “Digital Health Everywhere,” and the symposium will span a wide range of digital health topics. Speakers will include UNC researchers, students, and library staff, as well as representatives from industry, government, and non-profits. Topics will range from developing apps for different user groups, using novel devices for research, ethics in digital health work, and more.

Digital health is a growing area of research, clinical care, and education. New devices, mobile apps, software, and data sources are radically changing all of these areas as we move to the future of medicine. Traditional health technology hasn’t always included areas like the humanities and social sciences, the international context, cultural differences, and the interplay between academic work and the world of industry and government. The symposium seeks to explore these areas, showcasing the library’s efforts in the field, and encouraging the expanded definition of digital health.

If you already have your poster completed, please email Gayatri Rathod at grathod@live.unc.edu with a digital copy of the poster for consideration.
