Professor Carl Philpott’s Media Engagement 2021
Media engagement and awareness for smell and taste disorders has been at an all-time high over the last 18 months due in no small part to the continued impact of Covid-19 on people’s smell and taste. The important work of Fifth Sense trustee Professor Carl Philpott has been covered extensively in features by Sky News, the Independent, BBC Radio 5 Live and many others. The press office at the University of East Anglia, where Prof Philpott is based, tell us that his work has had over 1,200 individual pieces of media coverage in 2021 alone. The increase in exposure that this is giving to Fifth Sense, our cause and all the people we represent can only be of benefit as we continue to grow and develop our work.
We’re sure you’ll join us in saying a big thanks to Carl and his team for their continued hard work and wishing them a relaxing Christmas break after such a busy year.
