University of Utah’s GApp Lab Webinar

Posted: April 11, 2017

University of Utah’s GApp Lab (Therapeutic Games and Apps) is a collaboration between the Center for Medical Innovation and the Entertainment Arts and Engineering Program. The lab unites students, faculty, and industry professionals to work on therapeutic medical games and applications that are innovative, engaging, and clinically validated.

On April 26, 2017, the GApp Lab program will host an online demonstration of this year’s newly-developed tools and applications. Many of these interventions hold promise in clinical settings. Likewise, they offer an unique perspective into how medicine and gaming can intersect. This demonstration will be broadcast via WebEx in the 2nd floor conference room of the Clinical & Translational Science Center (room 2145) from 2:30-4:00 p.m.

Space is limited, so if you wish to attend, please email Alex Chang aichang@salud.unm.edu to reserve your space. There will be no other way to access this event, so in order to attend, you must reserve a spot in the conference room.
