'PlayForward: Elm City Stories' Published in Medical Journal


Play­For­ward: Elm City Sto­ries, the game we devel­oped for Yale University’s play2PREVENT labs, was recent­ly the sub­ject of an arti­cle that was pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Med­ical Inter­net Research.

The results, as sum­ma­rized by the New Haven Reg­is­ter:

We were able to deter­mine that the teens who played the Play­For­ward game as com­pared with the con­trol group had sig­nif­i­cant improve­ments in their atti­tudes … and their knowl­edge about sex­u­al health and these improve­ments per­sist­ed for up to one year,” said Fiellin, direc­tor of the Yale Cen­ter for Health and Learn­ing Games and the play2PREVENT Lab at Yale.

We are excit­ed to hear about these results, and look for­ward to hear­ing more about how games like Play­For­ward: Elm City Sto­ries are chang­ing people’s habits for the better.
