Booster Shot Media worked with researchers from the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research and Seattle Children's Research Institute to create a series of visual scenarios depicting interactions between patients, doctors, nurses, and genetics counselors.

Similar to a traditional comic format, the scenarios were shown as sequential images with speech bubbles. These were presented to prompt focus group discussion. Materials were made available in both English and Spanish. There are three different slideshows in this series. The slideshow above is the English version of the scenario about genetic testing related to future children.
