Discover Digital: Self Management and Care

About Discover Digital: Self Management and Care

How can we harness the power of digital to look after our health and wellbeing, on our own terms?

This is the question we will explore together, on the final day on Self Management Week, which also marks the launch of our 2019 edition of Discover Digital.

This will be a day suitable for all ages, dedicated to health and wellbeing. Together we will discover some of the ways in which digital tools can help us look after ourselves, now and in the future.

Free ticket includes Day Entry to Glasgow Science Centre (without Add Ons).

Programme
Stalls and activities will be available to visit between 10am - 3pm. Here is a snapshot of what will be available:
