Projects for Public Health in China
ImageSci aims to share basic scientific knowledge in a straightforward way by using the scientific illustration method among undergrads at the University of Toronto. Remarkably, many of the topics described by my cartoonized presentations propagated beyond student community into social media and became effective tools for the popularization of science. For example, in many developing countries, antibiotic misuse is critical issues need to be solved. It turns out that a series of my illustrations on antibiotics were used to educate patients and the public who had very little understanding of the implications of abusing antibiotics prescriptions. I am particularly encouraged by the fact that informing with scientific knowledge like this not only help to prevent incorrect prescription of the drugs but also contribute to the positive relationship between doctors and patients.
