There's a great recap of several Games for Health Day-Seattle presentations on Mark Danger Chen's's always good to get the perspectives of a self-confessed gamer in academia.  Thanks, Mark...from one who was writing about this event from her desk in Jersey, this was nearly as good as being there!  The Seattle Post-Intelligencer also ran a story on the event in today's paper.  Games for Health director Ben Sawyer had this to say:

"There's this caveman logic that it's all about kids and games, but there are so many other people we can reach....We can get the (health care and gaming) worlds to crash together and apply the different ideas in new and innovative ways."
