Comic Posters Exhibited

The book cover

An exhibition of comic posters created by Eleanor Aboussouan, who works as a benefits analyst at the AUB Medical Center, was held for three days at the beginning of October in Issam Fares Hall. The display, which was made up of panels of colorful and amusing illustrations, consisted of 15 comic illustrations that held much educational value in helping promote health awareness.

The posters were based on Aboussouan's comic book, A Toast to Your Health, which will be released soon. The book deals with health issues through the experiences of two children and how they interact with each other in trying to find the answers to questions about health, safety, and the environment. The objective of the show was to increase concerns of the public in dealing with and avoiding the many situations that may endanger life or cause disease, such as burns, bad hygiene, poor nutrition, and disregard for safety. Aboussouan explained that the messages conveyed through the cartoons need to be "viewed together in a studied fashion so people will understand exactly what they mean."
