I am currently finishing off my Masters in Comics at Dundee University and am going on to do a PhD in September. The focus of my current research is creating an autobiographical comic that addresses personal and 'collective' grief whilst simultaneously raising awareness for heart disease. I will be doing a lightning talk on this work during the conference. It is still very much a work in progress and I am eager to learn lots more about the role of Graphic Medicine throughout the event so I will hopefully get a chance to speak with lots of people and find out more.
Please feel free to contact me via facebook, twitter or by email email@example.com, as I say I am still very much in the early stages of my work and would love to learn more and would welcome any advice.
