Captain Kayla and the Basketball Scientists
Explaining research and biobanks for pediatric assent
A bioethics researcher asked us to develop a pediatric assent comic book to explain research and biobank concepts to children between the ages of 7 and 17.
Client: University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
We created a narrative-driven comic book about a high school basketball team that learns about research. The subplot of the story is the team captain being asked to become a participant in a biobank research study. The story uses humor and memorable visuals to help young readers understand the context of what they are being asked.

The comic book is being studied by the bioethics research team.
