Roundtable on Innovations in Games – Better Health and Health Care – White House, Washington, DC

Last Wednesday, I was lucky enough to help staff a White House meeting on the intersection of gaming and health care. I learned a lot about a service of the government that I wasn't even aware of, bringing people together and the collection of high quality information. Turns out, this is something the Federal Government is really good at. I also got to meet some really interesting and important people. A very cool experience overall.
