Can Video Games Treat Mental Health? The Power of Play

Mar 11, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

What does it look like when medicine and gaming collide? Join DeepWell DTx Founder, Ryan Douglas, Vince Kadlubek (Founder, Meow Wolf), Ryan Hartsell (Emmy Award Winning Immersive Experience Director), and Dr. Sam Browd (2021 Congress of Neurological Surgeons Innovator of the Year) as they discuss the new world of ”immersive medicine.” We will unpack key therapeutic game mechanics, how they work in the brain, the importance of cross-sector collaboration, and explore the true power of play and how it may be the key to some of the biggest accessibility and healthcare challenges we face today.
