Hello all! I am stepping in while Matthew is away. He will be back next week.For those of you who don’t know me, you can find out more in my introduction. As I’m new to this, let me know if I’ve missed something.
‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights relevant articles (and tweets) about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary, with credit given to those who flagged them up where possible. So without further ado…
Alice’s Pick of the Week…
I’ve used Hoopla for comics for a while now. I have free access to Hoopla through my local library. If you don’t have a library card, I suggest you go get one. Therefore I was delighted to learn that they have added a graphic medicine category! My library shows twenty titles. I am going to be taking advantage of this now!
I am cheating and having two picks this week. MK had me on the Graphic Medicine podcast this past week! I had a lot of fun chatting with her about my work and the future of Graphic Medicine website. We talked a bit about me endeavoring to catch everything for these This Week in Graphic Medicine posts! https://www.graphicmedicine.org/new-podcast-a-conversation-with-alice-jaggers/
