Drs. Larry Scheier and Bill Hansen, Senior Research Scientists from our partner organization Prevention Strategies, co-authored a chapter in the Handbook of Research on Gamification Dynamics and User Experience Design. Titled “Gamified Digital Apps and Their Utilization to Improve Health Behaviors in the 21st Century: Gamified Digital Health Behavior Interventions,” the chapter examines the intersection of game-based learning and digital health promotion apps.
Drs. Scheier’s and Hansen’s work explores how the intersection of digital technology and health promotion could provide cost-effective technologies backed by strong theory and implementation science to advance health promotion strategies.
