Graphic Medicine

My past experience is the intersection of libraries and comics, and I was so happy to discover that there are others out there exploring the same thing in Medicine! I'll be putting interesting things I find in the field here if you want to check it out.

Three panels, one for each word: Frontline, Comics, Project. Underneath Frontline is a group of physicians covered in protective medical garb. There is a plus sign in between this panel and the next. The next panel features comics artists, old and young, women, men, featuring most prominently a black woman with glasses holding a pencil and sketchbook proudly. In between this and the next panel is an equal sign. The final panel, the project panel, features the finished comic book.


These stories from the COVID pandemic are collaborations between frontline workers and comic artists.

Health Humanities Research: Seeking Patient Narratives Focused on Empathy in Healthcare

This Health Humanities Project, conducted by the Slattery Center for Ignatian Humantiies at the University of Scranton, is looking for patient stories about their experiences with empathy in medicine, and how it plays a role in their overall care.
