The Centre has a commitment to furthering public understanding of medicine and its past, and encouraging those who are interested in active engagement in the practice of the history of medicine. Carole Reeves develops projects designed to further public interest in the History of Medicine, and helps others to do so. She responds to enquiries from the media, government departments, the health service, authors, artists, actors, academics, publishers, museums, charities, and others seeking expert speakers, historical information or historical perspectives on current medical and health issues. She assists Centre staff and students in their own outreach projects and also engages them in outreach activities such as museum, school and local history events. She gives press, radio and television interviews but also passes requests for these to appropriate experts in the discipline.
