Graphic medicine is an increasingly popular term used to describe comics that discuss topics such as health, illness, and healthcare. For those interested in learning more about graphic medicine, GraphicMedicine.org is a great place to start. Launched in 2007, this website is run by Dr. Ian Williams (a physician and comics artist), M.K. Czerwiec, RN, MA (who writes comics as "Comics Nurse" and authored Taking Turns: Stories from HIV/AIDS Unit 371) and Matthew Noe (who launched the blog This Week in Graphic Medicine in 2016). Readers unfamiliar with graphic novels may want to start by checking out Williams's essays "A Short History of 'Art' Comics," available in the About section. From here, visitors can explore previous blog posts by categories, tags, and check out reviews and recommendations in the Comics Reviews section. In addition, Graphic Medicine features a monthly podcast, which often includes interviews with comic artists and medical professionals. In 2016, physician and comic artist Monica Lalanda launched the Spanish-language sister site Medicina Grafica - visitors will find this website in the Links section.
