Graphic Medicine in Libraries: Beyond the Basics
Thursday, January 27, 2022
9:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Zoom Meeting (Hosted by LILRC)
Conveying medical information to adults through comics is quickly catching on. Graphic Medicine is a field that explores and supports the interactions between the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare. Not only is it being used with patients but also as a teaching tool in academia for future medical professionals. Graphic medicine is a creative way to learn/teach about illness. In this program you will be introduced to and will learn how to use graphic medicine in your library.
Presenter: Ariel Pomputius is Health Sciences Center Liaison Librarian at the University of Florida’s Health Science Center Libraries in Gainesville, FL. She leads a graphic medicine book club for the geriatric clerkship students and teaches courses to undergraduates on dying and women’s health using graphic medicine materials.
