Event description

Description

This one-day seminar explores the legal and ethical questions that arise from the use of personal health data in online social media. Health data, broadly understood as information concerning an individual’s health or disability, can be exchanged in a number of different ways in social media: through specific health-related networking platforms, such as Patientslikeme; through general networking platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter; and, through health and fitness applications and wearable devices.


Speakers


Professor Jos Dumortier (Centre for IT & IP Law (CiTiP), KU Leuven, Time.Lex)
Professor Gloria Gonzalez Fuster (Law Science Technology & Society Vrije Universiteit Brussel)
Dr. Tristan Hendersohn (University of St Andrew’s)
Ms. Rosemary Jay (Hunton & Williams)
Dr. Robin Pierce (Tilburg University)


This event is funded by the UK Society of Legal Scholars (SLS).
