Planning and Public Health Spring Film Event, Part 4 of 4
Addiction Incorporated (2011)
Meyerson Hall, Room B-3 | 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Please join us for the final event in a four-part film series on urban planning and public health where we will screen Addiction Incorporated (2011), a documentary about whistleblower Victor DeNoble, the research scientist at a major tobacco company who proved that cigarettes were addictive. DeNoble took his findings to the people despite a strict confidentiality agreement, eventually testifying about his research in the infamous 1994 Congressional hearings with the seven heads of the major tobacco companies. Co-sponsored by the Department of City and Regional Planning, School of Design; Penn’s Center for Public Health Initiatives; and the Planners Network.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
