Graphic Medicine

The Medical Library recently purchased several books for a new Graphic Medicine collection. A growing trend in medical literature, “Graphic Medicine” refers to “the intersection between the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare.“ The collection contains graphic narratives that explore illness and other health topics from both the practitioner and patient perspective. The Graphic Medicine Collection can be found in the wooden cabinets near the library circulation desk – stop by and check it out! We also invite you to visit our subject guide on Narrative Medicine to learn more! If you have a personal favorite Graphic Medicine title or purchase suggestion, please let us know by emailing reference@siumed.edu
