Berlin Science Week Public Lecture 2021: The Future of Digital Health

Tohoku University is hosting a public lecture on the future of digital health at Berlin Science Week 2021.

Rapidly evolving digital technology and data science is changing the way we live. It is also partly the reason many of us are able to live longer. That's because advanced technologies have enabled us to predict - or even detect - the onset of diseases early, allowing us to take action, either to seek treatment or modify our lifestyle and habits.

In this lecture, the panel will address the future of digital health, and discuss how increasingly sophisticated technology can support our clinical and mental health, and also keep us productive and active as a society.

This event will be held in-person in Berlin, but will also be accessible via a live stream. It is open to anyone who is interested, but registration is required.
