Patient education posters

Hello!

I'm a wound care nurse in an outpatient clinic. We currently have zero educational materials hanging in patient rooms. I've searched the internet, but haven't found much in the way of patient education visual aids. Our clinic serves a wide socioeconomic range - many well educated patients, but many who have a 2nd grade reading level. I'm looking for posters that would provide useful info for all...

anyone have any leads?

I've thought about making my own, but not sure where to start. Topics like smoking and wound healing, nutrition, how blood sugars impact wound healing, compression, offloading, etc.

Thanks in advance!
