The medium of comics is uniquely suited for conveying health information in engaging, economical, and culturally sensitive ways. Comic narratives also offer a means for public health practitioners to share their dilemmas and a multiplicity of perspectives on complex health issues and policies. Comics can disclose the political, emotional, and ethical dimensions of public health practice. And importantly, graphic public health can also give voice to the people in our communities who are impacted by the policy and programmatic decisions made by public health officials. Meredith Li-Vollmer from Public Health – Seattle & King County will share examples of how she has applied comics to health literacy, health promotion and advocacy for public health. She will also discuss aspects of the creative process of developing graphic public health.
