New technologies and social media can be used to create novel ways to engage both patient and family members in order to create and promote a healthier state of being. As an Associate Professor in the Design department I work with local industry and institutions in ways that benefit both parties.
I will present two projects that were successful both as a learning experience and in contributing to our professionals partners. The first project demonstrates the use of virtual reality ‘Healing Games’ in collaboration with Firsthand Technologies, Seattle, WA.
The second example is a project in collaboration with Fred Hutchinson and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Students produced animations that inform both patients and family members about important issues about cancer and infection prevention.
