On March 8, 2007, the Corporations and Health Project held a symposium at the City University of New York Graduate Center on the topic of corporate practices and health. Dr. Nicholas Freudenberg, Dr. Sandro Galea’s and Dr. Nancy Sohler’s Power Point presentations from that event can be viewed here.
The health dimensions of corporate practices are also shown in a variety of feature and documentary films.
