games for health

At the Games for Health Annual Conference, Hollywood, Health & Society Director Vicki Beck discussed expanding/adapting the HH&S model to serve as a resource to the gaming Industry. The Serious Games Initiative founded Games for Health to develop a community and best-practices platform for the numerous games being built for health care applications. To date the project has brought together researchers, medical professionals, and game developers to share information about the impact games and game technologies can have on health care and policy.
