Second Life and Public Health

The University of Michigan’s Health Sciences Libraries have produced a video highlighting Second Life and Public Health. Second Life is a virtual world through which an active public health community is simulating disaster scenarios, creating interactive health games, offering people with disabilities a place for support and social networking, and providing a space for professionals to view presentations and attend international conferences. This video showcases the potential of this new media.

Visit of Play2Train (Asterix and Obelix sims), the nutrition game (Ohio University 188, 176, 27), the HealthInfo island, the Testis tour (OSU medicine Sim), Paris 1900 (jumps at the top of the Eiffel Tower) and …more.
