Graphic Medicine at VCU Libraries

Thurs., Feb. 11 at 10:30 a.m.

Led by Cindy Jackson and Talicia Tarver

“Graphic medicine” is a term coined by Ian Williams, MD, to indicate the “intersection of the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare.” Through graphic medicine, practitioners, patients and scholars have a medium through which they can discuss complex health topics using the type of storytelling reserved for comic books and graphic novels. VCU Libraries houses a number of graphic novels that have been used as key resources to discuss topics of health and wellness. In this session, Research and Education Librarian Talicia Tarver and Library Specialist for Comics Arts Cindy¬†Jackson explore these resources and share a list of suggested readings.
