Health in a Digital Society: More Power to the People?

Ringvorlesung Digital Society Initiative (DSI)

Developments in digital and mobile health promise to empower citizens to play a
greater role in healthcare and decision-making. But how does digitalization help
citizens to take more control over their health? And what might be the price to pay for
24/7 data streams, sensor measurements or reliance on artificial intelligence?
In this lecture series, digital shapers, citizens and out-of-the-box thinkers in digital
health will address these questions.

This series will be held in English apart from the lecture of 17 December which is in German.

(Please note: The speakers from the USA will hold their speeches remotely and won't be present on-site. It is not yet known whether the speakers from the UK and from Switzerland will be present on-site or not. You can find up-to-date information under the event listing in the Agenda.)
