dc.description.abstractGraphic medicine, or the use of comics in healthcare, is a growing field within medical humanities that is of particular interest to those concerned with health literacy and medical education. Currently, this field is being explored on several fronts at the Lamar Soutter Library in an effort to provide key resources for study and to build community awareness of the potential uses of comics in medicine. These efforts include a scoping review study funded by the Gold Foundation to determine how comics are currently used in medicine and to what effect; the creation of book club kits on specific medical topics - from cancer to PTSD to LGBTQ health - to be made available to the entire New England region; a growing collection of graphic novels available for borrowing from the library; outreach to area libraries, educators, and researchers who may be interested in the role comics can play in health literacy; the creation of book and citation lists for easy browsing; an ongoing effort to host speaking events with cartoonists and medical professionals engaged in graphic medicine; and an upcoming webinar to provide an overview of the field to any interested. In the future, we hope to partner with other community members to develop targeted comics to aid those in the community better understand their health.
