As part of the College of Public Health's Dean's Seminar Series, join us as we welcome Dr. Nicholas Freudenberg, Distinguished Professor of Public Health at the CUNY School of Public Health and director of the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and Healthy CUNY. For more than 30 years, he has worked with community organizations, civic groups and government agencies to develop, implement and evaluate interventions to improve the health of disadvantaged urban communities.
Dr. Freudenberg's talk, "The Public Health Impact of 21st Century Capitalism: Time for an Assessment?" will examine the impact of recent changes in capitalism on people's capacity to find work, food, health care, education and other necessities for well-being. He'll describe how globalization, financialization and privatization have influenced the health related practices of global corporations and ask what role public health professionals can play in reducing the harmful impact of our current economic and political system.
WHEN: Friday, Oct. 25 from 12:30–1:30 p.m.
WHERE: Tuttleman Learning Center, room 101
