Health Literacy Comic Strip Ideas

Through a CAPHIS caphis@caphis.mlanet.org blog post for today, I discovered the work of an innovative librarian, Ely Marie Whitaker, at the Cuyahoga County Public Library – Parma-South Branch in Parma, OH.    She had sought sources for health literacy comic strips to be used in a presentation she was preparing.      She shared some of the sources she gathered and I thought they would be of interest for you all,  as you create information pieces for your clients.   This information is shared with Ely’s permission.     Enjoy!

Mark Twain quote: “Be careful of reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”
