Discover Digital: for your health and wellbeing. 21 - 26 Oct

Imagine living better and healthier with the help of technology; come along to one of our events between 21-26 Oct to discover how.

Imagine if…

  • smart gadgets could help you live independently for longer?
  • we used virtual reality to inspire the next generation of doctors?
  • you could update your medical records with fitness data directly from your app?

From everyday tools to apps and specialist tech, discover how Scotland’s healthcare is going digital.

Discover Digital: for your health and wellbeing is Scotland’s first week of hands on, immersive, multi-media experiences where people of all backgrounds and ages can experience how digital technologies could improve their everyday wellbeing.

See the full listing.

The week will launch in Dundee on the 21st October, as part of the Dundee Science Festival, to showcase innovation from across the public and private sectors. If you live on the west coast and Dundee is a long way away – worry not. We’ll have a similar event at the Glasgow Science Centre on the 24th October. Come and discover some of the technologies that are already available to us and meet the innovators that make it all possible.

The rest of the week’s events will explore the ways in which technology can support people with their help and wellbeing in more detail:

The ALLIANCE has developed Discover Digital: for your health and wellbeing in partnership with the Scottish Government, NHS 24, NHS NSS and BCS Health & Care Scotland. See our partners page for the full list of collaborators.
