Dr Wootton will talk about:
"Social Media, Game Mechanics and Behavioural Economics - untapped tools in health?"
Why doesn't anyone read my emails? Why social media, game mechanics and behavioural economics have made attention transient and long talk titles remain unread
(and why this talk needs two titles!).
