Debra Lieberman, Ph.D talked about using interactive games to improve health knowledge, skills and behaviors this morning at the eighth annual Dust or Magic conference.

Health Games Research is an $8.25 million national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that is directed by Debra and supports research to enhance the quality and impact of interactive games used to improve health. Game platforms of interest range from game consoles, handheld game devices, arcade machines, Web sites and multiplayer online worlds, to exertion interfaces (dance pads, cameras pointed at players, motion-detecting remote controllers), robots, interactive television, electronic toys, context-sensitive programs or other emerging technologies that are becoming more affordable and accessible.
