Virtual Reality is really taking off with the help of smart phones, ever improving resolution, software infrastructure, and widely available content.
The time to harness this technology is now, especially in the space of behavioral health
This is why Stanford is putting on the the 3rd annual innovations in psychiatry and behavioral health conference that is focusing exclusively on virtual and augmented reality technologies
I’m here to tell you about the Team Brainstorm Innovation Lab, during which selected finalists will pitch VR related solutions to mental healthcare problems.
If you are interested in competing, click the link below to submit a video to Stanford with your idea. Now because it is a CME event, we cannot accept any entries from corporate entities, so check the eligibility requirements on our website.
Beginning stage ideas are welcome. We are looking for ways to apply the immersive experience of virtual and augmented reality to treating ailments such as addictions, ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, psychosis, pain, depression and more.
The video should be 2-3 minutes long, uploaded to youtube and include the problem of interest, your innovative solution, how it would apply to healthcare, what technology would be used, and a business plan.
The Lab is on October 7th 2017, and the deadline is quickly approaching, so submit your proposal now. Stanford will waive the conference admission fee for one presenter of each proposal that is selected for the finals.
The biggest names in Virtual and Augmented reality are expected to be there. Finalists will pitch, receive feedback, win awards and learn from experts to foster real-world change. The time is now.
Please join us from October 6-7 for the 2017 Stanford 3rd annual innovations in psychiatry and behavioral health: virtual reality and behavior change conference
