I have been creating graphics to explain some of the work we do. Infographics have a lot of power. This one is a rough draft, there are still too many words on it. It needs more pictures and less words, and some sources for verification. But sometimes images are worth 1,000 words, and I wanted to share this one with you to get a conversation started on how to represent some of the concepts we are sharing. This infographic explains some of the problems of the disease model. (Please stop saying medical model – our model has more science and medicine on our side than the old school approach does.)
Feel free to download, modify, or share as long as our logo stays attached to the image.
