  3. 3. Over the lifespan Individual characteristics Health is complex…
  4. 4. Digital technologies are… Pervasive Interconnected And driven by algorithms Flickr – Stuck in Customs
  5. 5. Digital Technologies – What has changed? Digital Health Technologies – Examples Outline
  6. 6. Disclaimer I will be discussing many different technologies. If I have any connections with the corporations, I will acknowledge them. Please know that I am NOT endorsing them in any way. I use them more as illustrative examples.
