Webinar: Should health professional associations refuse industry funding?

Register for Should health professional associations refuse industry funding?

Date and Time

Thursday 29 September from 2.00 pm to 3.15 pm

Event details

For decades, the formula milk industry has aggressively marketed their products – despite the negative impact on child and maternal health and human rights, and despite an International Code agreed by all countries to restrict this marketing.

Formula milk companies don’t just target parents. They also systematically target the people parents often trust most – their health professionals – to influence their beliefs, training and advice.

This webinar will explore the role of health professional associations in using their voice and power to take a stand.
