Physicians Can Order Free Diabetes Comic Books for Your Patients


To help assist agricultural workers in learning about diabetes, Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN) has partnered with professional artist and collaborator Salvador Sáenz to create “Mi salud es mi tesoro: Un guía para vivir bien con diabetes,” or, “My Health is My Treasure: A Guide to Living Well with Diabetes.” This second edition comic book explores the topic through the full-color story of an agricultural farmworker whose recent diagnosis of diabetes prompts him to engage in conversations with other agricultural workers on topics of diet, exercise, and illness prevention while facing the unique hurdles of living a life of migration. The comic book is available in Spanish and English. In order to print the right number of comic books, MCN is asking organizations to pre-order in quantities up to 500. The comic book and shipping will be paid for by MCN.
