Several recent Milbank Quarterly studies explore the relatively new area of scholarship on the commercial determinants of health (CDOH) or the impact of commerce on health. In a Milbank Quarterly webinar on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, researchers discussed frameworks for understanding the ways that industry shapes public policy, and how to develop regulatory environments that incentivize or constrain the commercial sector as needed to advance population health.

Panelists included:

  • Nicholas Freudenberg, City University of New York, School of Public Health (moderator)
  • Jennifer Lacy-Nichols, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, The University of Melbourne
  • Nason Maani, University of Edinburgh
