As one of its first inaugural research projects to sponsor, Oculus Education partnered with the play4REAL Lab at Yale to develop and evaluate smokeSCREEN VR, the first VR intervention focused on JUUL/E-cigarette prevention for teens. With encouraging early findings, the team will conduct a randomized controlled trial of the game in 2019. In this session, Kimberly Hieftje, PhD of play4REAL and Cindy Ball of Oculus Education will talk about their partnership and project highlights, including early pilot-study findings, next steps, and the value of these types of collaborations in contributing to the ever-expanding field of virtual reality research and education.
