Medikidz Explain Clinical Trials!

Explaining Clinical Trials to kids the fun way!

Medikidz is a children’s medical education organisation that works closely with healthcare professionals, families, children and patients to produce unique learning materials in an interactive, powerfully-visual comic book format, thereby helping to educate children about their health as well as the health of those around them. Over 3,500,000 Medikidz comic books have been distributed globally, involving over 400 leading specialist physician peer reviewers and 100 endorsing partners worldwide. The Medikidz mission is to create a global community of young people that is informed, empowered and health-aware.

The Medikidz comics have dozens of adventures, including ones about diabetes, cancer, eczema, and ADHD. And now there’s a comic book about volunteering for a clinical trial - called “Medikidz Explain Clinical Trials.”

The creators of these stories work hard to get the science right. Physicians write the basic stories, which comics writers and illustrators then elaborate and execute. The science goes through a peer review process, to verify the information that comes with the jokes and the action.
