The future of health: Views from the next generation

The youth of today – often referred to as “Generation Z” – are positioned to be in the vanguard of change of health policy, practice and science. Having grown up in the internet age, they are likely to be the first large-scale adopters of new technologies, such as wearable devices, and users of smart health applications. Their definitions of health and wellness may be radically different, along with their attitudes towards ownership and use of personal health data.

The Science|Business Healthy Measures initiative – in partnership with NTNU– is convening a public debate to explore how the next generation views the future of healthcare. Through an interactive, town hall-style format, this event will cover a wide range of topics, from personalised medicine and genomics, to digital diagnostics, using the Internet of Things to manage health and wellness at home, and virtual doctor-patient relationships.

Venue: Royal Garden (Room: Brattøra/Tavern)
