The Grow MedTech launch event will be headlined by Dr Victoria Betton, founder of mHabitat who will join us in Leeds to present her talk ‘Human-Centred Design and Digital Convergence’.

Dr Victoria Betton and mHabitat

Dr Victoria Betton is an accomplished academic, entrepreneur, author and owner of Bibi the Pets as Therapy dog.

Dr Betton undertook her PhD studying mental health and online social networks at the Institute of Communications Studies in the University of Leeds. Her research explored the relationship between institutions such as mainstream media and healthcare with mental health stigma and discrimination.

During her PhD Dr Betton founded mHabitat, initially as a small project to scope the value of digital technologies across two NHS Trusts in Leeds.

The scope of mHabitat’s goals quickly expanded to bringing patients, citizens and practitioners together with digital innovators, health tech companies and academia to design, develop, deploy and evaluate digital tools that really make a difference.

Since mHabitat’s founding in 2014, they have gone on to foster many highly successful collaborations between digital innovators, charities, NHS and government bodies throughout the UK.

Dr Betton is regularly invited to speak and inspire audiences fascinated with healthtech, technology innovation and the links between digital technology and mental health. As such, her insights into motivating collaboration in the context of user centered design are set to inspire our audience in the potential of digital convergence opportunities.
