Gout Cartoons

While gout is a very serious and extremely painful form of inflammatory arthritis, it is widely misunderstood–and often unjustly poked fun at–by the general public. To help raise awareness about the severity of gout, debunk common myths and encourage proper diagnosis and treatment, the Gout Education Society has teamed up with cartoonist Shaun Boland to introduce a series of educational comics.
