Porter Novelli Advises Businesses to Adapt to Trends in Life and Death

NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Global shifts in birth, health and death trends have profound implications for businesses and consumers. In its latest Intelligent Dialogue white paper, "Cradle & Grave," Porter Novelli examines these seismic changes and considers the strategic implications for organizations and individuals.
