Each year the University participates in Raising the Bar, an international event in which universities give back to their communities by offering free talks in local bars on a wide range of topics.

On 20 April 2021 Professor Steven Dakin was one of two presenters from the Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences speaking at the Auckland Raising the Bar event, at Everybody’s bar in Fort Street.

The topic was the development of ways to use technology such as AI and e-readers to diagnose eye disease and brain dysfunction. The vision is for common consumer-owned devices to increasingly capture data which will enable physicians to pick up on the subtle signs of a range of health conditions earlier, to support more equitable and effective interventions.
