Please join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary Addiction Incorporated.
This hard-hitting 2011 documentary tells the story of 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 heads of the major tobacco companies.
Following the screening, hear from Tobacco Control staff of Philadelphia’s Department of Public Health and members of the Penn community about on-going tobacco control efforts.
