Our Graphic Medicine collection has been steadily growing with a number of new releases, and some old favorites that we’ve recently acquired. The HHSL Graphic Medicine collection can be found on the 4th floor across from the Library Service desk. Since the section’s inception in the summer of 2018, the collection has grown to include titles dealing with a wide range of healthcare issues; including, addiction, Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, down syndrome, epilepsy, LGBTQ health, OCD, and Parkinson’s disease. Graphic Medicine divulges the lived experiences of patients dealing with illness, as well as personal accounts of the challenges faced by medical professionals.

Below is a list of recent titles added to our collection:

I had the pleasure of discussing the value of Graphic Medicine as a format in healthcare communication at the Charleston Library Conference this past fall. The poster presentation is available at this link.

If there is a Graphic Medicine novel that we don’t have which you would like to read, please let us know by recommending a purchase.
