Graphic Medicine

 

Introduction to Graphic Medicine webinar

This webinar, taught by Matthew Noe from the Lamar Soutter Library at UMass Medical School, will introduce the emerging field of graphic medicine, or, the use of comics in healthcare. We will begin with a brief overview of the field’s emergence, and then switch directions to highlight the role that comics can play in two key areas of librarianship: health literacy and medical education. The webinar will conclude with suggestions for collection development and programming to kickstart graphic medicine in your library.

Graphic Medicine Book Club Kits

If you are curious about medical comics, want to start a book club in your organization, or just want to learn more about the experience of a specific topic, our Graphic Medicine Book Club Kits can help. Each kit includes six copies of a graphic novel, a quick-guide to reading comics, discussion questions, and topic-relevant MedlinePlus information. Currently there are ten Book Club Kits available (see below) and at this time, are only available to organizations within the New England Region (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT).
