Kim Chilman-Blair & Esai Morales – A New Chapter in Medicine

Combining world class comic book writers and illustrators with complex and common illnesses, Dr. Kim Chilman-Blair’s MedicineX is redefining medical education for patients and families. With over 30 (and counting) conditions “xplained,” each story blends scientific insight from top global medical professionals, with personal patient/family stories, and allows for closed group discussion around each topic. Their first celebrity collaboration is with actor and perpetual activist, Esai Morales (La Bamba, Ozark, NCIS, Dora the Explorer), and focuses on his own history of migraines as well as his mother’s ongoing struggle with Alzheimer’s. This humor-filled and touching episode focuses on the explosion of MedicneX, Kim & Esai’s camaraderie, the big pharma debate, biotech, and the future of storytelling.
