Conference to explore role of stories in health and healing
Date:4/10/2013

Graphic novels have become useful tools to help doctors communicate with their patients, she said, and the conference will include presentations from two graphic cartoon artists: Brian Fies, who in 2004 created a comic strip called "Mom's Cancer" when his mother was diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer (momscancer.com); and Ian Williams, a physician and cartoon artist who explores the role that comics can play in the study and delivery of health care (graphicmedicine.org).

Chikako Takeshita, UCR associate professor of women's studies, is a conference co-organizer. Conference supporters are the UCR Center for Ideas and Society, The Andrew Mellon Foundation, the Rupert Costo Chair at UCR, and the UCR Departments of Women's Studies and Anthropology.
