Games for Health Conference Slated for End of May

May 3, 2010 -

The sixth annual Games for Health Conference will run May 25-27 in Boston at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel.

Backed by the Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the conference “focuses on supporting ideas that may lead to breakthroughs in the future of health and health care.”

Dr. Richard Marks, a Sony Computer Entertainment Senior Researcher, will kick off the conference with a keynote examining the “Mind-Body Experience of Sony Move” and the relationships between gaming, play and exercise.  All told, over 100 sessions will be served up, including “What Kids Get Out of Video Games: The Presence of Games in Healthy Child Development” with Dr. Cheryl Olsen and “Exploring the Concept of Healthy Videogaming & Gamers” with Games for Health Founder, Ben Sawyer.

The actual conference runs May 26 & May 27, but the week is rounded out with additional activities such as Serious Games Day on Monday, May 24, while Tuesday will feature an iPhone game developer boot camp and a symposium on emerging markets in games.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

I believe the past tense of sing is sung and general people don't sing their blog posts because the bandwidth costs of an mp3 is a lot higher than plain text.

You could just stick it in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes. By then, it'll probably be singed.

Andrew EisenI imagine they hope the clips they do host (some of which are rather long) are enough to entice viewers to watch the show on whatever channel it airs on.11/25/2014 - 5:54pm
