"Outbreak Responders uses the narrative power and visual interest of comics to tell the story of communicable disease response in a local health department. The story is a snapshot of the daily work of communicable disease investigation. Through the story, we aim to convey the high caliber of the public health workforce, the complexity and critical nature of the work we do, the dedication and passion of public health workers, and the constraints that we work under when resources are stretched thinly. We chose to tell this as a comic strip to make it accessible and easy to read, allowing the visuals to convey much of the message related to the breadth and urgency of public health services."
