Roberta Bivins will be presenting at this one day symposium investigating public participation in medicine and healthcare: 1800 to present. The symposium will bring together historical and contemporary perspectives to look at the relationship between the medical profession and the public. It will explore challenges to professional boundaries throughout the period, how the doctor-patient relationship has changed and in what ways the public can contribute to matters of medicine, health and disease. This one day public event will be followed by a drinks reception at the College’s Hunterian Museum. It will be of interest to medical and healthcare practitioners, the public, historians and medical humanities scholars. The event is open to all.
This event has been generously supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
