    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Educational video games to help kids manage asthma
    lifeguardforkids posted:
    Hello Everyone!

    I'm currently working to develop an educational game to help kids manage their asthma. Specifically, we create virtual pets for phones and tablets in which the pet also has asthma. We've designed our pet to teach and motivate proper management actions.

    We're interested in connecting with you and learning more about the challenges you face, and specifically how our app could be useful to you. Your feedback will directly inform our design.

    Is there any interest in discussing this or connecting offline? Any thoughts on or experiences using these educational games?

    We just launched our website at

    Hope to hear from you!
