Monday 22nd July, 6 - 8 pm at Wills Memorial Building, Bristol University
How do you feel about using home surveillance technology to keep you healthy and living at home?
Most people would prefer to be looked after in their own home, rather than in hospital or in a residential home. However, when people are discharged from hospital, or are elderly and living alone, they are often reliant on the care of neighbours, family or our over-stretched health and social services. How can modern technology help keep you and your loved ones healthy and living in your own home? Come and find out at the Launch of the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute.
The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research is a new organisation that will deliver innovations desperately needed to tackle many of our pressing health problems. At the launch we will also be celebrating the life and work of Dr Elizabeth Blackwell. Born in Bristol in 1821, she was the first woman to qualify as a medical doctor in the USA and then became a pioneer working in public health in the UK.
The official launch will highlight Elizabeth Blackwell's life and work, and will include a panel discussion focussing on the use of cutting-edge engineering technologies in health monitoring. This will be followed by a reception. Doors open at 5:30pm for a prompt 6:00pm start. For further details simply click on the link: http://ebi-launch-public.eventbrite.co.uk/
