The Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) delivered a stimulating Healthy Aging workshop at TEDxGlasgow 2019. It was well chaired and generated a thought-provoking discussion amongst the groups with a diverse range of views and suggestions. The materials provided were a really innovative way of facilitating a discussion.
