SDP 68: Virtual reality in healthcare and finding the next generation of games developers

In episode 68 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast, we are joined by Ivan Phelan, Senior Research Fellow at Sheffield Hallam University who specialises in using VR for healthcare, and Jake Habgood, Director of Education Partnerships at Sumo Digital. 

It was great to have Ivan and Jake with us to discuss using games and VR in various healthcare settings, and Sumo’s new digital academy which aims to get more young people into the industry.
