Get Ready for the Hemocraft ™ Challenge! Loosely Based off of the Hit Video Game Minecraft, Hemocraft Teaches Kids the Importance of Staying Prepared and Sticking to a Treatment Plan!
What is Hemocraft ™? In partnership with the Entrepreneurial Game Studio at Drexel University, the National Hemophilia Foundation, and members of the hemophilia community, Pfizer Hemophilia has developed HEMOCRAFT—an educational tool that aims to teach kids the importance of staying prepared and sticking to their treatment plan.
MINECRAFTTM is a game that lets you explore and create a world of your own. In MINECRAFTTM, you search for items and then combine them to “craft” new ones. In HEMOCRAFTTM, your treatment team will teach you where to find items you’ll use to craft your own infusion kits. Then, you’ll be able to self-infuse and track your factor supply in order to stay prepared throughout your quest.
Your Quest: In addition to building and creating, you can go on adventures in MINECRAFTTM. In HEMOCRAFTTM, you’ll go on a quest to slay the Ender Dragon that has been threatening a small village. You’ll need to be brave—and stay prepared—to do it!
