About the Project
There are many of common diseases that everyone should be aware of, but who wants to memorize from dry tables out of textbooks? Disease Decks uses creative illustrations to help you remember distinguishing features of different diseases. With this project we will create a deck of at 54 cards with the most important cardiac, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, and renal issues (as per the United States Medical Licensing Exam). The printed version will include a standard 54 cards, but we plan to cover as many diseases as our resources allow us to, for the digital collection.
Check out some of the sketches and examples we have put together below! The cards can be printed plane or as a deck of playing cards.
As a full example, we walked through the process with Helicobacter Pylori, which is a common cause of stomach ulcers.
Here are a few more sketches we did to entice you.
