Dr. Amiad Fredman interviews Streetlight’s Drew Walker – Digital Doc Interviews
About the video:
Streetlight Gaming League is a peer-to-peer support network that allows adolescents and young adults living with chronic illness to connect, game, and heal together. The effects have been outstanding. Hear straight from the founder of the league, Drew Walker, of why games are a crucial component of the care plan for patients in UF Shands Hospital.
About Dr. Amiad Fredman
Dr. Amiad Fredman recently graduated from medical school, but instead of following the more traditional path of pursuing a clinical residency and seeing patients within the hospital, his path looks a little different. He is interested in all things digital health, medical education, and how technology can be utilized to improve patient care and the healthcare system outside of the traditional hospital setting. Specifically, he is interested in how video games and video game technology can be used to have positive impacts on people’s lives. And so, he started Digital Doc Games, a YouYube channel and podcast to explore how people are doing just that.
About Digital Doc Games:
Digital Doc Games has one goal – to demonstrate how videogames have positive impacts on people’s lives. Videogames have the power to help us connect, build communities, learn, grow, and heal. Gamers know this to be true, but outside of the video game community, it is lost on the general public. Digital Doc Games aims to change that. Through interviews, let’s plays, and personal stories, Digital Doc Games spotlights how videogames can bring us all together.
