Dr. Victor J. DeNoble will share both his expertise as a researcher of nicotine addiction and an insider’s view of the industry. DeNoble was employed by the Philip Morris Corporation to study and develop a safer nicotine substitute. His highly-controversial findings led him to become the first whistle blower to testify before the U.S. Congress and the key witness in the federal government’s investigation into the tobacco industry’s research practices. DeNoble’s program will offer a unique perspective that is valuable to all on tobacco, the addiction and the industry.
