CONFERENCE COLLECTIVE MEMORY
Muna Al-Jawad, Organizer of the 2013 and Comics & Medicine conference, Brighton.
I am a physician who looks after older people, as part of a multidisciplinary team in a hospital in Brighton, UK. I also have a superhero alter ego: Old Person Whisperer. I create comics as part of my practitioner research. I also help students and other healthcare professionals understand their practice through comics. I am interested in education, medical culture and resistance. My best article published so far is a comic about comics as research in the journal of medical humanities (2015). I (sometimes) tweet as @OPWhisperer.
