Games for Health Day on May 9, 2006 in Los Angeles, California

The organizers of Games For Health asked me to announce their Games for Health Day event. I didn’t know much about it before but I find the ideas fascinating. Here’s how they describe the event:

This one-day event, just before the opening of the Electronic Entertainment Expo will bring together researchers, game developers, and health & healthcare professionals for a series of talks devoted to how games and game technologies are addressing critical health & healthcare issues.
