A new e-comic called the Invasion of the Alien Zombies launched to educate students about the immune system and the role of immunization against illness.
Along with Dr. Kumanan Wilson, four senior students from Algonquin College’s Health and Wellness Research Center worked on the project of the digital comic.
Dr. Wilson is the founder of the Ottawa Hospital mHealth Research Team and creator of CANImmunize. This is a mobile immunization tracking system that allows people across Canada track their family’s immunizations through their smart phones.
The new e-comic will be available online and through CANImmunize funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Almost 170,000 Canadians have already downloaded the app available on iTunes and Google Play.
The e-comic approaches in immunization education from a child’s perspective and is the best way to engage and educate students about science.
The Immunity Warriors: Invasion of the Alien Zombies is now available in English through CANImmunize on Android and iOS and the French version will be available in the coming months.
