Creates community - Graphic medicine allows readers to find a community of similarly affected people and reduces isolation.

Fosters empathy - Graphic medicine provides a window into various perspectives: the health providers, the patients, and/or the caregivers. 

Improves communication - Graphic medicine provides an accessible, approachable way to address complex topics. The combined language of words and pictures can increase comprehension and retention. 

Reduces stigma - Graphic medicine may confront issues considered "taboo" and can represent something that patients are afraid to talk about.
