‘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…


If you attended #ComicsMedicineSeattle, PLEASE make sure you fill out this feedback survey: Comics Medicine Seattle Feedback Survey! This is particularly important this year in light of grant funding that requires feedback reporting. It will also help make sure that next year’s conference in Vermont is even better!
