Discover Digital: Embedding Human Rights in a Thriving Digital Scotland - 11 October 2023

Colleagues from Digital Health and Care participated in The ALLIANCE DigiFest satellite event on Wednesday 11 October in Glasgow. The event brought together a range of speakers on topics of human rights, equalities and inclusion in the context of digital health and care and AI. Sharing our work on digital inclusion, Dr Tara French presented: ‘From pillars to practice: Prioritising digital inclusion in health and social care’; and colleague Morag Hearty engaged with delegates in ‘Connect Me’ through demonstration and an interactive stall.
