Why Build A Graphic Medicine Collection?
We are delighted to have Dr. Shelley Wall as our guest speaker who will introduce the field of graphic medicine (the intersection of comics and healthcare), outline its relevance to narrative medicine and health humanities, and point to some key resources for those interested in learning more.
Shelley Wall (MScBMC PhD) is an assistant professor in the Biomedical Communications Graduate Program at the University of Toronto, where she teaches courses in graphic medicine as well as pathological and neuroanatomical illustration. She has been involved in the graphic medicine community for many years—as a creator, scholar, conference organizer, and, most recently, a founding member of the Graphic Medicine International Collective. As Illustrator-in-Residence in the UofT Faculty of Medicine, she offers workshops in graphic medicine and other aspects of the visual health humanities to medical trainees and healthcare professionals.
