Why Soda Taxes Can Address Pandemics and Direct Public Dollars to Equity-Equity Advocacy @ Webinar
Sep 30 @ 5:00 am – 6:00 am

Between 2014 and 2018, eight jurisdictions in the United States implemented taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs). In parallel, via efforts of the beverage industry, multiple states passed laws to prevent the passage of any further local SSB taxes. Dr. Madsen will present the most recent evidence on the impact of SSB taxes on public health and how such taxes can save billions of dollars in health-care spending. She will share new research documenting how revenues from soda taxes in the U.S. are being used, including how they have supported a rapid response to the COVID-19 crisis. She will also discuss the potential impacts of these revenues being invested in historically disenfranchised neighborhoods and communities.
