Unless you spend most of your time floating in an alternate universe, you are aware of how virtual reality, or VR, will transform the future of our healthcare.  The latest NIH News in Health, Beyond Games: Using Virtual Reality to Improve Health, describes the potential uses of this technology.  The NNLM PSR is excited to dive into the use of VR technology with the Jay Sexter Library, who won one of the NNLM PSR’s funding awards for their project titled “Using Virtual Reality & 3D Technologies to Expand the Health Professions Pipeline in Southern Nevada”.
