MK Czerwiec (Nurse and comic creator)

In this talk, nurse, cartoonist, and co-founder of the field of Graphic Medicine MK Czerwiec (Comic Nurse) visits the Consortium for Culture and Medicine to discuss how comics can help improve our health by making health education more engaging, by amplifying the perspectives of patients and families, as a tool for conducting and translating our research, and as a means by which we can explore our experiences with health, illness, disability, and caregiving.
