Defined by the WHO as “private sector activities that affect people’s health”, the Commercial Determinants of Health (CDoH) framework has the potential to inform powerful new approaches to reducing the world’s most serious public health problems.

Are you interested in the Commercial Determinants of Health (CDoH) and how schools and programs of public health can apply the CDoH framework? This webinar is designed to prepare faculty and students at schools and programs of public health to apply the CDoH perspective to their teaching, research and advocacy.

In this webinar, participants will learn from leading academic experts about the CDoH and how schools and programs of public health can apply the CDoH framework to their teaching, research, and advocacy. This discussion can be used as a starting point for sharing experiences and materials, identifying best practices, and setting competencies in CDoH for public health professionals. Participants will be invited to join small discussion groups and a learning community on teaching about CDoH in public health programs.
