‘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…
This Week is a double issue that also includes 5/16 and 5/17.
Matthew’s Pick of the Week…
Co-Editor of this graphic medicine, Alice Jaggers, is going to be giving a webinar titled: Panels as Windows: Graphic Medicine and Empathy, a Tool to Understanding Patients, Caregivers, and Healthcare Professionals on June 12th! Since it is being put on by the NNLM SCR, it is free to attend and I highly recommend you do!
And a second pick would be this comic from 2017 – technically a motion-comic – about Why You Should Turn Your Yard Into a Mini-Farm. It’s unclear to me why this resurfaced so popularly two years later, but it is a great piece and I’d absolutely call it graphic medicine; climate change is part of everything.
