‘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…
The latest from Anita Ravi, MD, exploring homelessness in medicine: Patients Facing Homelessness Need More Than Referrals.
Reminder: TWIGM was on hiatus throughout July and I do not back-log for the posts – thank you for understanding!
As you likely already know, The Nib, one of the most regular outlets for graphic medicine webcomics, is losing their funding as of this week and are switching to an entirely membership model. I encourage you to consider helping keep them running! You can find all the information at: https://membership.thenib.com/.
