Plague Inc. creator, James Vaughan, has been invited by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to speak at their HQ about how video games can be used to increase public awareness of health issues.
If you're not aware of Plague Inc., the game simulates the outbreak of a pandemic disease, with Vaughan saying that it is as "scientifically plausible" as possible. The CDC will invite him in so he could talk and hopefully reach a wider audience with a more casual approach, games. He has said: "They're also very keen on how games like Plague Inc. can be used to inform the public about health issues and raise public awareness of these issues."
