WHO I AM: Sue Eckstein
MY CONNECTION TO GRAPHIC MEDICINE: Bobbie Farsides and I organised an Ethics in Performance event on Graphic Medicine at Work and invited our colleague Muna Al Jawad, and my fellow Myriad authors Nicola Streeten and Nye Wright to come and talk about their wonderful work. I have to admit that this was my first real exposure to graphic medicine and I was hooked.
HOW I USE GRAPHIC MEDICINE IN MY WORK: I am just beginning to find ways of using graphic medicine in my work. I have been particularly impressed by some of the great comics on depression which I’m hoping to use in my Bedlam and Beyond student selected component next term.
PROJECTS I’M WORKING ON RIGHT NOW: I have just been appointed editor of the BMJ journal Medical Humanities.
A FEW THINGS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO AT THE 2013 BRIGHTON COMICS & MEDICINE CONFERENCE: Absolutely everything – particularly looking forward to meeting colleagues with whom I’ve been corresponding over the past months and seeing the timetable come to life.
