PittPharmacy’s Olufunmilola Abraham, PhD led a team to develop Cystic FiBlaster, a game to improve medication adherence and patient safety among adolescents living with cystic fibrosis. The team won first place at the University of Pittsburgh Games4Health game jam held on campus. Games4Health Game Jam challenged teams to develop ingenious and innovative solutions to critical healthcare problems within a 24-hour period.

Cystic FiBlaster focuses on improving disease knowledge, enhancing medication adherence, understanding the mechanism of action of medications in the body, and facilitating patient-provider communication about medication use and other health concerns.

In addition to Abraham, PittPharmacy team members are Alison Feathers and Hailey Mook; School of Computing and Information members are Andrew Mrkva and Dylan Fuhr.
