2 December, 2014 - Lunch Hour Lectures: Accessibility engineering: enabling a human right

Time: 13:15:00 - 13:55:00

Disabled people make up the world’s largest minority; in the UK, about 10% of a person’s life will be spent with a disability. Access to buildings and services is a human right, however making the world accessible for everyone is challenging. Dr Holloway will explore accessibility engineering – from exoskeletons to transport.

Location: Darwin Lecture Theatre, Darwin Building, access via Malet Place, London, WC1E 6BT

4 December, 2014 - Lunch Hour Lectures: Can big data attack heart disease?

Time: 13:15:00 - 13:55:00

How can the data collected in hospitals be used to help improve quality of care? What benefits might come from linking health record data with genomic data? And how can we build public trust in the research uses of health data? Professor Hemingway will discuss these using the example of cardiovascular diseases.

27 January, 2015 - MHealth Conference: How can mobile technology improve health in low and middle income countries

Time: 09:00:00 - 16:30:00

The UCL Institute for Global Health and Umeå Centre for Global Health Research, Sweden invite you to attend our conference on mHealth: Evidence from low- and middle-income countries. The first of its kind in the UK, this multidisciplinary event will assess the evidence base for mHealth in the world’s poorest settings. The explosive growth of mobile technology over the past decade has generated exciting new thinking around the potential of so called “mhealth” to improve health, with evidence beginning to emerge from high-income countries. However, the evidence base from low- and middle-income countries is weak. The two-day symposium will examine current debates around evidence within the fields of health systemsand health education, with a focus on tangible health outcomes

Location: Kennedy Lecture Theatre, UCL Institute of Child Health , 30 Guilford Street , London, WC1N 1EH
