This multidisciplinary team will describe the use of comics in healthcare, otherwise known as Graphic Medicine. The interactive workshop will include a brief overview of the field's emergence, will highlight the role that comics can play in librarianship, and will share resources available to librarians through the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM). The workshop will conclude with suggestions for collection development and programming to kickstart Graphic Medicine in your library.
