Title: Panels as Windows: Graphic Medicine and Empathy, a Tool to Understanding Patients, Caregivers, and Healthcare Professionals Guest Speaker: Iliana Molina, Director of EyeMobile for Children, UC San Diego and UC Irvine

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Time: 10am CT / 9am MT

Description: Graphic medicine is comics about health. This communication medium has received an increase in attention over the last decade. A major reason for this is due to findings that it is well suited to increase empathy in healthcare students, healthcare professionals and caregivers. This webinar will deepen the discussion on graphic medicine and medical humanities by diving into implications of emotional understanding and recognition of humanity in health. Participants of this webinar will examine the use of comics to communicate various perspectives in the healthcare process.
