UNIT I: EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO BETTER UNDERSTAND AND MANAGE THEIR HEALTH
 
Patient participation and commitment to improving one’s health has been boosted by the emergence of the digital revolution, a variety of web applications, video games, and smart clothing. Individuals now have access to information and are curious to know more; this creates a need to provide people with proper access to relevant information and the necessary tools to prevent illness and manage health. In this section, we will explore the unlimited potential of the health market, with concrete examples in the areas of e-health, wearable tech, and serious gaming, etc.

UNIT II: THE POWER OF THE MEDIA TO CHANGE BEHAVIOUR
       
In a context in which obesity, physical inactivity, smoking, and a lack of access to medical care are the most important factors contributing to illness, behavioural change is the cornerstone in the quest for health. To encourage individuals to adopt healthy lifestyles, several campaigns promoting healthy habits have been implemented around the world. In this section, we will see how advertising can contribute to health-related problem solving, with regards to pandemics, obesity, and mental health.

The Hacking Health Design Challenge, presented by f. & co., to take place during the MSI

Montreal area creators tackle health-related challenges before your very eyes at the MSI! Ten teams of seasoned designers and their apprentices will exercise their creative genius throughout the MSI in order to develop innovative solutions to real health issues submitted by health-care professionals and patients. Mobile apps, captivating sites, services, games… What will they come up with, how will they showcase their abilities? Imagination, talent, freshness, collaboration, experience, and novelty will be the key ingredients in their creative process. Come witness them at work during the day, see them present the fruits of their labour at the closing on November 6. Show the whole world how Montreal can—better than anyone—bring together creativity and health!
