$0.00

The "Our Health" event on October 30 will explore the relationship between technology and health. This program will be of special interest to the iGeneration (those who were born after the birth of the Internet, 1995) their parents and grandparents.

Access to the Internet and new technology has transformed the world of communication and health care. But, this proliferation of digital activity is not without negative effects! Cyber bullying, sextexting, and unwanted or unintended distribution of digital footprints and photographs can be dangerous. On-line users, particularly the iGeneration, are at risk of isolation, addiction tendencies including gaming disorders, anxiety and depression, all of which can lead to significant mental health concerns.
