Connecting Communities to Health Information: Graphic Medicine Kits at the Public Library
To combat health misinformation and stigma, Darien Library created Graphic Medicine Kits to circulate within their community. During this webinar, hear about the creation, promotion, and circulation of these kits, successes and potential improvements in the process, and the NNLM grant that made it all possible.
Brittany Netherton is Head of Knowledge and Learning Services at Darien Library. Graphic Medicine combines two of her favorite job duties: curating adult graphic novels and disseminating reliable health information into the community. She has presented on Graphic Medicine and other graphic novel topics at Comic-Con International and New York Comic-Con.
Attendees will be able to:
- Identify resources to aid in determining community health needs.
- Discuss the uses of graphic medicine to combat health misinformation and stigma with public library patrons.
- Define strategies and barriers for implementing graphic medicine book club kits in a public library.
