USC Institute for Global Health Associate Director Dr. Heather Wipfli will present at Duke Global Health Institute regarding the rise of corporate sovereignty in terms of global health governance, tobacco and trade. This event will be livecast.
Dr. Wipfli’s research focuses on global health politics and the development of innovative forms of global health governance. She has successfully led a number of large multi-country research and capacity building projects focused on global tobacco control research and policy, including a study of secondhand smoke in homes in over 30 countries. These studies have led to policy change at the local and national level and have contributed to the scientific foundation for global policy recommendations by the World Health Organization.
