|Session Name:||Adapting: Working in Games with Chronic Illness|
|Company Name(s):||Sony Interactive Entertainment|
|Track / Format:||Advocacy|
|Overview:||According to the CDC, 6 in 10 adults in the US have chronic disease and 4 in 10 adults in the US have two or more chronic diseases. This number is staggering. With such a large number, you can expect to come into contact with folks who have chronic illness on a daily basis as co-workers, friends, or employees (or you possibly have a chronic illness or disease yourself). We will discuss how folks dealing with chronic illness can still lead a relatively normal work life, and how you as a co-worker, boss, or fellow human being can help make their life a little easier.|
