In the inaugural episode of the City Interaction Lab podcast hosted by Stuart Scott and Ernesto Priego talk about graphic medicine with Dr Simon Grennan (University of Chester) and Peter Wilkins (Douglas College, Vancouver Canada).
The episode discusses the work co-designing the comics ‘Parables of Care‘ and ‘I Know How This Ends’ centred on dementia care. These complementary issues shine the light on those living with dementia and their carers.
If you are interested in how comics can be incorporated into your design practice then this is one not to miss!

Parables of Care explores the potential of comics to enhance the impact of dementia care research.
The 16-page publication presents in comics form true stories of creative responses to dementia care, as told by carers, adapted from a group of over 100 case studies available at http://carenshare.city.ac.uk.
