3RD ANNUAL INNOVATIONS IN PSYCHIATRY AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH: VIRTUAL REALITY AND BEHAVIOR CHANGE

Call for Submissions: Poster Abstracts and Brainstorm Innovation Lab Entries

Overview

The 3rd Annual Innovations in Psychiatry and Behavioral Health: Virtual Reality and Behavior Change will be presented by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine on October 6-7, 2017 at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge at Stanford, CA.

The theme of this year's conference is Virtual Reality and Behavior Change. Virtual and augmented reality technologies are transforming what is possible in mental healthcare. That's why we at Stanford are hosting a competition for ideas in virtual and augmented reality that can reimagine the way mental healthcare is delivered.  

The conference will also feature a number of innovative posters concerning scientific work using virtual and augmented reality in mental healthcare, health behaviors, and healthy behavior change. Posters will preferably include demonstrations and interactive technologies associated with current work.
