Event Details

You are invited to attend a one-day symposium on the interface between science, technology and human health. As technology advances, so does its potential use in health care. Data analytics, smartphones, social media and sensors are now being used to both detect poor mental health and successfully deliver interventions.

This raises an important question. Do we really need to be physically face-to-face with people to provide quality mental health care?

 Join us at this special event to hear more from the experts. A special keynote address will be given by Prof Thomas Insel M.D., former Director of the US National Institute of Mental Health and currently Director of Clinical Neuroscience at Verily (Google) Life Sciences.
