Games for Health Industry Insider: New, Innovative Newsletter Delivers Timely Industry News for the Burgeoning Field of Health Games

New Rochelle, NY, September 7, 2011–Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers announces the launch of Games for Health Industry Insider, a new bi-weekly electronic newsletter offering up-to-the-minute industry news on health games-an emerging and increasingly adopted resource for healthcare. Games for Health Industry Insider complements the company's new, breakthrough peer-reviewed journal, Games for Health: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications, which will launch later in the year. The e-newsletter, which will be available at the end of September, will be included with a subscription to the Journal.

Games for Health Industry Insider will provide timely industry and technology updates on the movers and shakers who are transforming the field, new products, exciting breakthrough research, key upcoming conferences, current events, and public comments regarding health games.

"Innovative health games are already being used to treat a variety of debilitating conditions-from heart disease to post-traumatic stress disorder-and hold significant promise for better outcomes for patients," said Mary Ann Liebert, president and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. "We are going to see games for health treatment regimens in hospitals, in-patient and out-patient settings, and in the home where patients can use them to accelerate their goals and progress. Together, our forthcoming peer-reviewed journal Games for Health: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications and our accompanying e-newsletter Games for Health Industry Insider will help shape and advance developments in this important and emerging field."

As a special promotion, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers is currently offering a complimentary trial subscription to the e-newsletter only, in advance of the Journal publication. For details, please visit our website.

The new bi-monthly print and online journal, Games for Health: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications, is a peer-reviewed publication dedicated to the development, use, and applications of game technology for improving physical and mental health and well-being. Launching later this year, it breaks new ground as the first to address this emerging, widely-recognized, and increasingly adopted area of healthcare. The Journal was created to provide a much needed, authoritative, and influential resource for decision makers who purchase, use, prescribe, recommend, design, publish, fund, or invest in digital games for health.
