Applied Health Humanities: When the Graphic is the Medicine
Presented by "Comic Nurse" MK Czerwiec
The emerging field of Graphic Medicine (the intersection of the medium of comics and the discourse of health, illness, disability, and caregiving) promises to be of great value to patients, families, and caregivers. In this talk, one of its early practitioners and champions will describe how comics (yes, comics!) can help us to better give and receive care.
1.0 CE Hours
Designed for nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse educators, and all interested health professionals
The talk will be followed by a book signing. Books will be available for sale.
