Innovation in Science Literacy Award (ISLA) 2017: winner announced as ‘Cimaza Virology Comics’

The inaugural award winner of ISLA is ‘Cimaza Virology Comics’.  Using the power of illustrations, comics and animated videos Cimaza facilitates the acquisition and transmission of scientifically accurate information on viruses and vaccines, thus improving health and science literacy.

The graphic material of Cimaza is provided in the major European languages and in Arabic and covers a number of different topics, including bacterial and viral infections, antibiotics and vaccine safety. The challenge is to deliver scientific knowledge using an engaging and attractive means directed to a wide range of learners (children, parents, immigrants, refugees and low literacy communities, general public), empowering them to make the right decisions and take appropriate actions on their health and quality of life both in normal situations and during emerging crises.

For more information see the Cimaza profile.

ISLA is funded and administered by the Hardie Wren Development Initiatives (HWDI) and facilitated in collaboration with NIDA.

Anti-vaxxers’ New Game: the S.I.D.S – I warn you!

Few weeks ago, 30 Romanian & 2 🇮🇹 kids DIED from #Measles #Morbillo!

Antivaxxers, instead of admitting their fault, they are now playing SIDS!

There is NO such link between Vaccines & SIDS. We have been explaining this using the most easy-to-understand model: the comic.

This why @VirologyComics is A LIFE-SAVING initiative!

Please help us to educate children, parents and grandparents about the science behind vaccines and viral diseases by sharing these FREE comics we publish weekly.

THANK YOU!

Why VirologyComics?

Vaccines have saved millions of lives worldwide, and yet, there are a startling number of individuals and communities who believe that vaccines are dangerous. The science to support vaccination is clear, but sometimes the message to the lay community is not. That is why we need new and innovative approaches to spread the message that VACCINES WORK.

It is sometimes hard to get support for ideas that are different. That’s why we are asking you to support our project @ cimazacomics.com to educate children (& parents) on the Science behind Vaccines and Viral Diseases

Susan Nasif, Ph.D

Who is @XceptionalVirologist?

Susan was among the pioneer researchers who worked on the “hepatitis C virus” with the laboratory group of Professor Fabien Zoulim in Lyon, France. During her undergraduate years, she was “awarded the Certificate of Excellent Performance three times” for her exemplary work and academic skills.

Susan is a “cartoonist”. She has worked with children from an early age, combining art and science for a more engaging approach to both disciplines.
