‘This week in #graphicmedicine’ highlights relevant articles (and tweets) about comics in medicine published during a the week (Saturday – Friday). Articles are typically presented without commentary, with credit given to those who flagged them up where possible. So without further ado…

Special Announcement: I will be hosting an upcoming webinar out of the NNLM New England Region office on March 7th! This will be a quick and easy introduction to Graphic Medicine specifically meant for librarians, but will be of interest to others as well. You can register (for free!) here: Introduction to Graphic Medicine.
