2013 Games for Health Game Jam (Sept 20-22 @ SPSU) - Ben Sawyer at the opening ceremony 
As you can see from the picture from the opening ceremony with Ben Sawyer leading a discussion on games for health, the jam has been wildly successful.  Thank you again to all of our sponsors, leadership, and volunteers for making this the most amazing jam we've seen yet.

The following is a list of all the teams and games developed.  We'll update this post with links and more details of the finalists who will go on to the Games for Health day at SIEGE, so check back for more info.
