Cognitive Health Track at Games for Health Conference

Ben Sawyer and I just agreed to cre­ate a new Cog­ni­tive Health track ‑Pow­ered by Sharp­Brains- at the 5th Annu­al Games for Health Con­fer­ence. I will host the 11-ses­sion Games for Health Conference - Cognitive Health Tracktrack, cov­er­ing a vari­ety of cog­ni­tive health and brain fit­ness top­ics and an overview of Sharp­Brains’ upcom­ing report The State of the Brain Fit­ness Soft­ware Mar­ket 2009.

When and where: June 11–12th at the Hyatt Har­bor­side Hotel in Boston, MA.

Con­text: The Games for Health Con­fer­ence is pro­duced by The Seri­ous Games Ini­tia­tive and sup­port­ed by the Robert Wood John­son Foun­da­tion. The con­fer­ence brings togeth­er researchers, med­ical pro­fes­sion­als, deci­sion-mak­ers at health­care and insur­ance providers, inno­va­tors and game devel­op­ers. I have attend­ed a few times, and have always been impressed by the cal­iber of both speak­ers and every­one in the audi­ence. Real­ly a very good crowd.

Some options to participate?

1) Attend: The cur­rent price is $379, with a 15% dis­count if you use code “sharp09” (with­out quo­ta­tion) when you reg­is­ter Here. Spe­cial price for stu­dents is $200.

Please note that the Cog­ni­tive Health track is being sched­uled now — we will announce the detailed agen­da dur­ing the month of May.

2) Speak: We are look­ing for inno­va­tors, researchers and deci­sion-mak­ers who would like to speak about their ongo­ing projects relat­ed to the use of games and oth­er com­put­er-based tech­nolo­gies for cog­ni­tive health.

If inter­est­ed, please Con­tact Us, by May 1st, a cou­ple of para­graphs sum­ma­riz­ing a) your project, bio and orga­ni­za­tion, b) what key lessons learned and impres­sions you would share if giv­en 20 minutes.

3) Advertise/ Sponsor/ Exhib­it: To inquire about options, please con­tact Beth Bryant, one of the con­fer­ence orga­niz­ers, at bbryant at

We are proud to col­lab­o­rate with The Games for Health Con­fer­ence and expand the Cog­ni­tive Health dialogue!
