SXSW 2017

Advocating VR & Gaming in Hospitals

We will use video documentation, charting statistics, and first hand stories from our panelists to demonstrate how C.S. Mott Children’s hospital has successfully integrated the gaming community into their therapeutic practice. We will highlight other hospitals that have had success in working with the gaming community. We will provide attendees with a clear framework as to how to implement a similar program in their own institutions. We will discuss the most effective ways attendees can assist their local hospitals based on their own resources and talents. Finally we will provide our attendees with direction as to where to acquire more information and tools to help their organizations.
