Health and gaming are converging to enable healthier lives through games that people love. From wellness programs in large companies to adolescents that play video games as much as they are in school, games have the potential to increase the health and quality of life of millions of people.

How do we make health-promoting activities more mentally rewarding? Which digital experiences will improve the healthcare system? There are a number of ways that games can positively impact the way we care for ourselves and each other.
