This final event in a four-part film series on urban planning and public health featured a screening of 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.
