Comics and Medicine 2018 Conference

The Comics and Medicine 2018 Conference seeks to engage health providers, health information professionals, artists, academics and members of the local community in the use of comics as a resource to provide accessible health information and communicate health-related experiences. This year's conference theme is "The Ways We Work" and will offer panel discussions and oral presentations on the ways that graphic medicine is being practiced by teachers, librarians, healthcare professionals and artists. Proposed workshops will focus on visual literacy, teaching, and contemplative practices. The conference will also host the National Library of Medicine's traveling graphic medicine, Ill Conceived and Well Drawn.
