Citizens aged 18 to 65 will be given the opportunity, thanks to the sistema “Smart Health 2.0”, to monitor, through totally free applications on the mobile phone their habits, diet and lifestyles, and the correlation with the onset of diseases such as migraines or diabetes.
The apps will allow citizens to have immediate feedback on the data entered and will suggest any corrective actions to improve the state of well-being.
Through the computer system, citizens will be able to view information on pathologies, receive information on how to change their diet or lifestyle to reduce the risk of the onset of pathologies, monitor their physical state and receive practical advice.
The involvement of citizens who want to participate in the project will take place, with the support of the Urban Center Calabria network, at the Casa della Cultura in via Vittorio Emanuele the days 20 and 21 July from 9.30 to 14.00
Citizens who join the experiment will then be able to go to the House of Culture on Wednesday 22 July where the functionalities of the applications will be illustrated and made operational.
The councilor for social policies Filippo Esposito highlighted the involvement of third sector associations in the project, meaning that technology meets the needs of citizens on important issues such as health.
The councilor for urban planning Sergio Contarino highlighted the aspect of technological innovation at the service of citizens. The project is part of the broader programming in the municipal administration sector aimed at providing effective services and reducing costs.
