BALTIMORE and WASHINGTON, May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The latest "gaming for health" trends -- including "exergaming," health elements in popular commercial games (e.g., a "disease" being unleashed inadvertently on the population in "World of Warcraft") and sophisticated, new videogames used to train emergency medical personnel -- will be outlined during a live, two-way phone-based blogger/online news event at 1 p.m. EDT Thursday (May 8, 2008).

The special news briefing for bloggers and other online media will take place on the opening day of the May 8-9, 2008 Games for Health Conference in Baltimore, MD.
