  About this Event:  


Are you suffering from Space Invaders wrist? Should you beware of Koop-Man? During the early 1980s, as video games surged in popularity and stole the quarters (and hearts) of millions of Americans, healthcare professionals looked on with both excitement and anxiety.


Join historian Kevin D. Impellizeri for a virtual lecture as he offers a look at the complicated relationship between video games and health during the 1980s.
