Type 1 Diabetes Comics
We have teamed up with Revolve Comics to help share their amazing work! Follow them here:
Revolve Comics created a series of comics about Type 1 Diabetes with the help of the NHS, and they are available online for FREE! Download them below.
HEAL.med also prints out the comics to put in our Goodie Bags and distribute to anyone who wants a high-quality printed version.
We do have a small cost associated with this to cover the costs of printing, storage, and distribution, but don't forget that we are a not-for-profit, so any remaining changes goes to supporting the diabetic community.
