Comics & Medicine: The Sequential Art of Illness

Jun 9-11, 2011
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago
This week Rinko participated in a symposium and panel discussion in which she presented her self-publication, “Aggression Management Manga” at the Comics and Medicine 2011 Conference. Comics and Medicine is an organization focused on the use of comics in the healthcare profession, and the 2011 Chicago Conference featured presentations by over 30 panelists and keynote speakers covering a wide range of topics related to this important and fast-growing area of healthcare.

Rinko’s Aggression Management Manga is as much an educational tool and training guide as it is a delightfully entertaining and personal account of her experiences working as an Art Therapist and Counselor at Chicago Lakeshore Hospital. In this work, Endo-sensei expertly achieves her goal of making mental health and education available to everyone while keeping it light, interesting and entertaining without losing any of its instructional value.
