Care Team Comics

The Care Team Comics illustrate the power of visuals to draw attention to and cultivate interest within the world of science. Each of these comics shares the true story of a patient and their provider interacting within an experimental approach to primary care at the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation. Providers displayed these three comics around the Clinic and throughout the community to communicate the benefits of this new approach to providers, patients, and caregivers.

Graphic facilitation is the visual documentation of a speech or conversation performed live and unrehearsed in front of an audience by an artist. These are my graphic facilitations performed at a variety of conferences and situations.
