Comics for Impact: Changing Lives With Comics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Comics have an incredible but still largely untapped potential to both educate and edify. Meet some of the people who are trying to change that. Leigh Willis (behavioral scientist, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), Rebecca Thompson (Spectra the Laser Superhero), Tom Nugent (director of neurotechnology, new media, and training solutions at Intific), and Josh Elder (executive director of Reading With Pictures) will discuss their experiences in creating comics to address serious, real-world issues like mental health, disease prevention, STEM education, social change and more. Learn what they're doing and learn how you can be part of the global Comics for Impact movement!
