This November San Francisco will host the inaugural standalone Virtual Reality Developers Conference, and as part of the event's broad coverage of the virtual- and augmented-reaility industries a panel of experts will explore how VR/AR can be used to improve healthcare.

During the panel on "The Future of Healthcare: Creating VR/AR for Patients & Doctors" experts Tracey John (Vice President, Associate Creative Director, Havas Health), Bart Kok (Studio Manager, The Virtual Dutch Men), Dr. Mark Lightowler, PhD (Founder and CEO, Phorix Limited, formerly head of digital innovation at Novartis) and Gerald Flannory (Vice President, Associate Creative Director, Havas Life New York) will discuss the needs, the challenges, the opportunities, and the process for creating VR/AR in healthcare by sharing their own work and experiences.

Not only is there emerging research and innovation in providing diagnostic and therapeutic applications for patients using VR and AR, there is a storytelling aspect, often aimed at physicians and non-patients, that can help inspire empathy and understanding of various disease states.

To learn more, you'll have to attend the talk yourself. To do so, head over to the VRDC website now and register to attend the conference, which will feature a plethora of great VR/AR talks spanning games, entertainment, and beyond into subjects such as healthcare, journalism, travel, manufacturing, retail, live events, real estate, training, and so much more.

VRDC 2016 will take place November 2-3 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. For more information on VRDC 2016, visit the show's official website and subscribe to regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.
