Using Graphic Medicine & Visual Communication
4:30PM - 5:00PM
ABOUT THE SESSION
Graphic medicine, or the intersection between medicine and comics, is just one of the methods of visual communication that will be discussed in this session. This session will go through the use of visual communication tools like infographics, data visualization, information design, environment design and signage, use of imagery and iconography in web and app design as well as using more comics in medicine. Hear more about how graphics and images can impact everything from health equity to clinical research studies to patient health outcomes to the success of grants. At the end of this session, you’ll walk away with some new ideas for approaching your own work in the future and how you can use visuals more effectively and equitably in a way that promotes racial justice.
