‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights news about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary. So without further ado…
Matthew’s Pick of the Week…
Pick this week HAS to be this fantastic article about using My Degeneration to enhance clinician’s understanding and empathy by a slew of GM folks: Use of a Graphic Memoir to Enhance Clinicians’ Understanding of and Empathy for Patients with Parkinson Disease.
I also want to use this space to apologize for the inconsistency of TWIGM throughout the Fall. I can’t promise it is going to get better – I am overextended and finding a chance to do this has been difficult. I will keep trying to post as often as possible!
Note: this week’s post includes more than just the last week, though not everything that was missed in between posts. I tried to gather what I could.
If you have any interest in guest hosting a week, please reach out to me.
