Comics & Medicine Conference
Access Points
Jun 15-17, 2017
Seattle, WA

Participants at this conference are invited to consider accessibility as a crucial aspect linking comics and health. Comics — a medium broadly characterized as “accessible” because of its ability to reach diverse audiences and to provide a platform for marginalized voices — can make visible and reflect upon the urgent subject of health access. Comics can explore the issue of accessibility in past and current practices of health care and can point to imaginative solutions for extending and expanding health care.

Submissions focusing on health, medicine, and comics in any form (e.g. graphic novels and memoir, comic strips, manga, web comics) are welcomed. Comics that address substance use disorders, HIV, sexual risk behavior, and behavioral and public health topics are included in the scope of the conference.

The conference is free to attend and will take place at the Seattle Public Library in downtown Seattle.
