This Funzing Experience:
From robot surgeons and digital doctors to curing cancer and ending aging, the future of health has never looked brighter. Companies large and small, along with governments and universities, are creating unbelievable solutions to some of the most pressing needs in human health, meaning we can look forward to a world in which both mental and physical health is better than ever before.

But with technological innovation comes questions of ethics, privacy, and what it means to be human - questions which we as a society haven't quite come to an agreement on yet. So let's dive into the world of the Future of Health - taking a look at what technology and science are bringing us, both the 'incredible' and the 'to be decided'...
