Phones, drones, and disease; i-sense presents at a workshop at the University of Hong Kong

On 17 and 18 May 2018, i-sense members Dr Val Turbé (McKendry group at UCL) and Professor Rosanna Peeling from LSHTM were invited to take part in the ‘Phones, Drones and Disease’ workshop, organised by the Centre for the Humanities and Medicine at the University of Hong Kong.

The purpose of the workshop is to explore how digital networks are reconfiguring health, who benefits from these new technologies, who pays for them and what kinds of resistance and countervailing effects are these technologies producing.
