The following directory is meant to collect Twitter handles and brief biographies of individuals involved with graphic medicine – from comic creators, to scholars, to libraries, and more. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of graphic medicine, a wide-range of expertise is collected here that may not be blatantly medical. For example, Maris Wicks‘s work is more broadly about communicating science through comics – which is important and relevant to the work of healthcare as well.
*This directory is a continual work-in-progress. If you know of missing individuals or find broken links, please alert me in the comments or on Twitter at @NoetheMatt.*
