Health Games Research has awarded grants to 21 universities, medical centers, and other non-profit organizations in 2008 and 2009. The grants support research on processes and effects of playing games that increase players’ physical activity and/or help them improve their healthy behaviors or self-care. This research is developing theoretically grounded, evidence-based principles for the design and implementation of effective health games, while addressing the unique needs of specific populations of game players.
