Comic books are making strides in higher education

This month on G1 website, a Brazilian news portal maintained by the Globo Group, reported that comic books are making strides in higher education. The subject is a research theme of professors from the University of Fortaleza (Unifor). In this context, RIDC NeuroMat comic book called "The Arms of Nildo and Ron" was a highlight case. It is about a comic book that guides patients with traumatic injury to the brachial plexus, a set of nerves responsible for communication between the brain and upper limbs. The story recounts the encounter of a "motoboy", Nildo, who had a motorcycle accident, and a doctor, Rony, who was shot in an armed robbery. Both of them damage the brachial plexus and have partial loss of arm movements. HQ was produced with the aim of informing patients and relatives about this type of injury, which leaves sequels even after surgery. Portal G1, 28/09/2018. (In Portuguese.)
