On Tuesday, Nov 3, 2015, Karen Glanz, PhD, MPH, Director of the UPenn PRC, Co-Principal Investigator of The Healthy Weigh Study and Principal Investigator of The Skin Cancer Communication Project, was interviewed on SiriusXM Business Radio’s Knowledge@Wharton about the new World Health Organization’s classification of processed meats, like bacon, in the same category of cancer risk as tobacco. Glanz, a professor of Epidemiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, joined Jason Riss, a marketing lecturer at the Wharton School, in a discussion about how this decision affects consumers and the food industry
The UPenn PRC has been a catalyst for research in chronic disease prevention and a leader in advancing the science and practice of prevention research. Along with our studies in cancer prevention, cognitive health, and new strategies for weight loss, we’ve researched adolescent and young adult survivors of childhood cancers, the economic impact of clinical trials, and a Penn-community partnership, the Philadelphia Health Leadership Institute. We invite you to learn more about these projects and our dedicated investigators and staff on this website.
