On Tuesday March 16 from 4 to 5:30 pm EP Faculty Member Nicholas Freudenberg, CUNY Distinguished Professor of Public Health is launching his newest book!
The new book At What Cost Modern Capitalism and the Future of Health (Oxford University Press) explores how recent changes in capitalism have made it harder for people to get the food, health care, education, work, transportation and social connections they need to sustain health. The book also analyzes the many efforts across the country and the planet to create healthier, more equitable and sustainable alternatives to corporate domination and suggests how we can build a more effective and powerful movement to achieve these changes. At the event, Nick will provide an overview of the book and Marion Nestle, Professor Emerita of Nutrition at NYU, and Mary Bassett, the former NYC Health Commissioner now at Harvard University , will comment on the book, followed by a Q and A.
