Gaming to Help Cancer Victims Understand Their Disease

Here’s an interesting find at CES:  “Remission,” an action adventure game targeted at teens and young adults to help them understand their cancer and the importance of taking medications and treatments as prescribed by their physicians.  An initial study shows that some patients were helped, resulting in greater adherence to treatment regimens and greater engagement with medical teams with regards to their treatment. 

Here’s a video interview with the booth representative at CES.
