Quoted: James Sargent on Super Bowl Ads for Alcohol



Dartmouth Now takes note when faculty and other members of the community weigh in on issues of the day. Here is today’s “Quoted”:

“This study raises serious questions about whether alcohol companies should be able to advertise on television at all, much less on a program that reaches as many children as the Super Bowl,” says the Geisel School of Medicine’s James Sargent in a CNN opinion piece about television alcohol ads that run during the game.

Sargent is the Scott M. and Lisa G. Stuart Professor in Pediatric Oncology and co-director of the Cancer Control Research Program at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
