Comics and Medicine 2016 conference! See you there!

Here comes the 7th annual comics and medicine conference! And this year, it’s in Scotland!

This will be my first time attending since I finished grad school and I’m looking forward to seeing if and how that’s overhauled my thinking.

I’ll also be giving a 5-minute lightning talk on the insulin comic I’ve been working on for Massachusetts General Hospital! Come and check this out during Friday’s Innovation in Care panel.

Thur-Sat July 7-9
Dundee, Scotland

... is that Dundee as in the hometown of The Beano? Yes it is. YES IT IS. I wish I could send a time travel postcard to Young Me, the little girl who read that comic voraciously. Minnie the Minx statue in Dundee, why don’t you reserve an entire day for us to hang out.

Comic: What the Hell? Why is My Doctor So Late?

Black and white comic explaining reasons why primary care clinicians may be late for appointments with their patients

Would you like to buy a paper copy of this comic? Go for it! $2.50 each, shipping included, mini-mini size (4.25"x5.50"). If you put it in a clinic waiting room, I would love to hear how that goes.
