How can we harness the power of digital to look after our health and wellbeing, on our own terms?

This is the question we will explore together, at this Discover Digital day, part of the Dundee Science Festival.

This will be a day suitable for all ages, dedicated to health and wellbeing. Together we will discover some of the ways in which digital tools can help us look after ourselves, now and in the future.
