Center Seminar Schedule
"The Law Tries to Answer An Age-Old Question in a Public Health Context: Is Bigger Better?"
Amy Campbell, JD, MBE
Peter Bell, JD
In this presentation, Professors Campbell and Bell will discuss how the law - particularly, the courts - should deal with recent efforts by government health officials to combat dramatic increases in the incidence of obesity. They will use, as at least one prime example, last month's decision by a New York court striking down the New York City Board of Health regulations limiting the serving size of sugar-sweetened beverages sold in NYC restaurants.
Free and open to the public.
Please feel free to bring your own brown bag lunch!
SUNY Upstate faculty, staff, and students and members of the community are welcome to attend.
