    Exhibit Description:

    Though you may not have heard of medical comics before, they’ve been Doctors in surgical gear drawn in comic book stylearound for more than a decade. In 2007, Dr. Ian Williams coined the term “graphic medicine” to describe the portrayal of personal illness through comics. In 2012, author/illustrator Ellen Forney published a New York Times bestselling graphic memoir depicting her struggle to accept her diagnosis with bipolar disorder. MK Czerwiec published Taking Turns: Stories from HIV/AIDS Care Unit 371 in 2017 to describe her time nursing AIDS patients throughout the 1990s.

    These are just a few examples from a wide array of works that use comics to tell medical stories. Comics provide an accessible path for patients, health professionals, caregivers, and others to engage with subjects that are often painful or complicated.

    The National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well-Drawn! recognizes and explores this literary genre through six display panels. Exhibit visitors can also peruse popular graphic medicine books and try their hand at drawing a medical symptom. Longtime graphic medicine enthusiasts and newcomers alike are welcome to attend.

    This exhibition was produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
