For President Obama's ambitious health care overhaul to work, lots of young people need to sign up for coverage. Reaching those teens can be tricky, but the administration knows what's hip to the youth. Today the White House unveiled a new awareness campaign aimed at the growing audience for professional video gaming, or e-sports. The pitch is being supported by big industry names like ESL and Twitch and features a YouTube video with well-known competitors discussing their own struggles to find health insurance and deal with the devastating injuries joystick jockeys and their fans can suffer.
Anna Prosser-Robinson tells the tale of her husband, Geoff Robinson, better known on the e-sports circuit as iNcontroL. Two years he awoke with unbearable pain in his legs. At the hospital the couple learned it was a blood clot, which, if left untreated, could lead to a severe stroke or even death. Luckily the clot was spotted in time, but recovery required medication and months of medical visits. "A huge shift for him, as he’s not a doctor person in general," Prosser wrote of the incident.
