Virtual Reality is having a significant impact on many facets of health and medicine. From diagnosis and treatment, research and preventative care, teaching and surgery, some of the most fascinating work being done in the application of virtual and augmented reality technology is occurring in the health care field.
“NewseumVR Meets: Health and Medicine” brings together thought leaders to discuss these evolutions in medical technology.
Doctors, researchers, computer scientists and patient care groups will discuss and demonstrate work in this area. The evening will focus on using virtual reality to treat post traumatic stress disorder, provide pain relief and expand surgical training. In addition, the program will explore cutting edge techniques for neurosurgery and patient education.
Newseum chief technology officer Mitch Gelman will moderate the discussion.
The program is part of a major Newseum conference series on the impact and future of VR and immersive technologies.
Prior to the 7 p.m. program, demonstrations of VR technology will be made available to the audience participants beginning at 6 p.m.
“Newseum VR Meets” is presented by HTC VIVE.
