“Games for Health: From Personal to Social Impact”

The application of games for health has become a credible intervention strategy for addressing diverse aspects of health issues, including health behavior change, healthcare professional training, and treatment. 

The next Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods event will explore this intervention method.

Georges E. Khalil, assistant professor in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics at the University of Florida, will present “Games for Health: From Personal to Social Impact” Wednesday, March 8, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

Khalil’s talk will highlight the mechanisms of action for the success of games for health behavior change among youth, and present a series of cases that showcase the ability for games to improve personal health outcomes and promote social change.

Register for the talk.
