Engaging Patients and Providers with Graphic Medicine in Your Library

Graphic medicine refers to the intersection of the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare. In this session, we explore how to help providers and patients alike access, read, and create graphic medicine through the library. Participants will hear from both a librarian and a cartoonist, providing insight into both the uses and implementations of comics into health sciences librarianship, as well as the creation of comics.
