The Graphic Medicine International Collective (GMIC), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to guide and support the uses of comics in health, is thrilled to announce an award for outstanding health-related comic project completed and/or published in 2021. The award winner will be announced (live and live-streamed) during our 2022 Graphic Medicine Conference in Chicago. This award was made possible by a generous matching gift in Honor of Nancy and Herbert Wolf.
Nancy and Herb were married for 61 years. They raised four children and enjoyed their two grandchildren. Nancy was an artist, especially skilled at needlepoint, and a medical records administrator who chaired the medical records department of a Chicago-area hospital. Herb was a consulting actuary specializing in life insurance. In 2010, he received the lifetime achievement award from the Conference of Consulting Actuaries. As college students in the late 1940s, Nancy and Herb fought racial discrimination, sitting-in at segregated lunch counters. They supported anti-racist, anti-war, and economic social justice causes throughout their lives. They performed numerous plays with friends for over forty-five years. Nancy died in 2010. Herb died in 2018. This award is intended to honor and carry on their legacy of service and care.
