America is in the midst of unprecedented, historic events. From the myriad medical and economic challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, to fundamental racial inequities that demand societal solutions, this is a time like no other.

 

What role can virtual reality (VR) play therapeutically and as a tool to address racial bias and facilitate change? These are among the questions that we'll examine in this free webinar June 30, 9-11 AM PST, hosted by Cedars-Sinai Virtual Medicine.

In this online vMed event, we'll explore how home-based VR programs are helping to overcome geographic and staffing barriers of traditional video and in-person visits. We'll discuss how two of the largest clinical VR programs are adapting to the challenges from COVID-19, we'll examine how VR is helping to bring the humanity back into healing at a time when we are physically and emotionally distanced in a rapidly changing world; and we will learn how VR can serve as an "empathy machine" (in the words of VR innovator Chris Milk), not only for doctors caring for their patient, but for society caring for itself.
