In February 2011 Paul Tarini, senior program officer of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Pioneer Portfolio, presented a talk at the <a href=”http://www.gdconf.com”>25th Annual Game Developers Conference</a>. This important talk focused on the changing nature of health and the changing nature of the games for the health ﬁeld. An adapted form of that speech is presented here in full-length article form and was included in our 2011 Games for Health Program Guide.
With the upcoming <a href=”http://www.gamesforhealth.org/index.php/conferences/gfh-2012/”>conference in June of 2012</a> we wanted to make sure we’d posted a version up on our site for you to read as the ideas it contains are still very much a big part of what’s in store for this year’s event and other activities the Games for Health Project is undertaking this year and beyond.
