As part of NNLM NER’s ongoing commitment to supporting the integration and expansion of graphic medicine in the outreach work of our partners, NER hosted the very well received New England Graphic Medicine ComicCon on April 10.

If you couldn’t attend or want a refresher on some of the resources presented, check out the links below to get caught up.  And thank you to all of our presenters for contributing to a successful and educational day.

Vermont’s own Rachel Lindsay started the day off by walking attendees through the process of creating her book Rx and the thought that went into all of the design choices from panel placement and lettering to character design. Listen to Rachel discuss her book at an event earlier in the month at Harvard.

Brittany Netherton and Matthew Noe (Matthew’s slides) shared their experiences creating and maintaining graphic medicine collections at their institutions and opened the session up to discussion.  Check out the links below for useful resources they shared:

Interested in ways to include graphic medicine programs in the work you do?  Alice Jaggers, University of Arkansas Medical School, and Marissa Gauthier, UConn Health Center Library, shared their own experiences planning and implementing graphic medicine programming.  For ideas and best practices, download Marissa’s slides here.

A. David Lewis talked about creating a graphic medicine course, lessons learned, best practices and possible barriers. And he streamed it live, too. Check out the recording here.  He also makes his course presentations available on Youtube.  Check out the first presentation and find others on his Youtube channel.

To see what attendees had to say, check out the #NEGraphicMedCon tag on twitter or the round-up post by Jerry Kauppila from NNLM PSR.
