I’m Sapana Adhikari, an ER doctor, and a medical illustrator. Over the last 20+ years of clinical practice, I have been combining my interests in art with my career in medicine. My two main interests: health literacy and medical humanities.
Health literacy: I’ve recently published my first book, Diagnosketch: A visual guide to medical diagnosis for the non-medical audience. It’s a collection of 100+ simplified images to explain medical diagnoses to patients at the bedside (www.diagnosketch.com). Also, I have been working on several projects related to health literacy. My goal is to simply medical concepts for the non-medical audience visually and effectively. I’ll periodically share posts on health literacy and the various projects I am involved with.
Medical humanities: I am very interested in the the medical humanities. I paint (oil) in the genre of Narrative Medicine. I’ll send an occasional post about the medical humanities, creativity, medically-themed art and books, and interviews with other creatives. I’ll also share my narrative art projects and processes.
