Professor Elena Bertozzi, associate professor of game design and development in the School of Arts and Sciences at Quinnipiac University, offered insight on how gaming will influence and impact the future to the Pacific Business News.

“Right now, it is easier to demonstrate efficacy and monetize gaming in healthcare than in some other areas, which is helping it advance at a rapid rate,” said Bertozzi. “Doctors are using games to train as well as in patient care. Current games in medicine encourage pro-social behaviors with patients in recovery from some types of surgeries and/or injuries. With new technology, we will find even more ways to integrate games to promote healthy behavior and heal people mentally and physically.”
