Lunch and Learn: Graphic Medicine from Head to Toe

Noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 18

A discussion of comics and medicine that shows the breadth of what is available, what’s being made locally, and how it’s being created. Lunch will be provided to the first 50 participants.

Jeff Benham is a freelance artist, writer, and educator living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has worked in a broad variety of arts, often focusing on the combination of language and image to communicate stories and concepts.  Jeff’s art has won regional and national awards, and he was a highlighted artist at 2018’s Denver Independent Comic and Art Expo.  His comics work varies widely, including Grace, a lyrical wordless exploration of snow, memory, and loss’ Nace and Cenu, a wacky 24-hour comic series about a ballerina and her dancing dog, created with his goddaughter Natalie; and Peoplings, a heavily-researched graphic narrative about autism and the roots of special education. Following a presentation on Peoplings at the international Comics and Medicine Conference, he and collaborator Courtney Angermeier wrote the lead article for Atrium: The Report of the Northwestern Medical Humanities and Bioethics Program’s 2012 issue on graphic medicine. Jeff is the educational coordinator for 7000 BC, a non-profit collective of comics creators from around the New Mexico. He has lectured and lead workshops for all ages on a variety of comics-related topics for numerous schools, universities, libraries, museums and conferences.
