I’m thrilled to work in partnership with the
! Quebec Order of Pharmacists (OPQ) for Pharmacy Awareness Week 2019
For the occasion, I’ve created a comic that will be distributed to pharmacies throughout Quebec and provided to clients who come in for a new prescription.
is to explain what happens while one waits for their medication, which is a
total mystery for most people! Ultimately, the goal is to demystify the work of
pharmacists, and to show what we do – and can do – for the public.
I like the idea of learning without realizing it, hence the absurd visual metaphors. I hope people will receive the comic in the waiting room and be like “
What is that?!“. This sounds like a good starting point 🙂
The comic was created for pharmacists and for the public. In other words, it’s yours.
. Upon request, I can also provide you with a ultra-HD version, which you could print on giant canvas for display on cliffs, skyscrapers, etc. Here’s a link to the PDF version (8.5 x 11″; includes a 0.25″ bleed)
like to use it outside of Quebec, please let us know, I’m sure we can figure
something out 🙂
A huge thank you to OPQ, to all pharmacists and pharmacy staff members, and to all of you for your interest in this project!

Are you under the impression that clinical trials are constantly saying the opposite from one another?
That, mysteriously, new trials with awesome results appear every 30 seconds?
That you can always find that one trial that will prove your point?
That big companies manipulate data?
That shady websites only cite the conclusions that are good for them?
If so, you’re not wrong… and it’s super easy to do, by the way.
Here’s a guide on how to make a clinical trial say whatever you want it to say!
