Center for Community Health

Education, Talks & Events

Knowledge is power. Meeting the health information needs of the community has been an integral part of the Center for Community Health since our inception.

  • We empower the community to become healthier through health talks and presentations offered in community centers, public schools, churches, and more. Visit Got Health? for a list of upcoming community-based health talks.
  • We offer Public Health Grand Rounds (lectures), which facilitate the exchange of best practices and encourages the interchange between community and academic Public Health professionals. The rounds provide a regular forum for discussion and communication of topics of current interest and local relevance. View this past year's lectures, by visiting Public Health Grand Rounds 2011-2012 Web casts.
  • We also run a summer series of Public Health Grand Rounds called "Summer in the City." Visit Summer Series for the schedule of talks that will run in June and July of 2013.
  • We offer education and research training to better prepare those engaged in community-based research to translate research findings more quickly from the bench to the bedside to the community. Learn more by visiting Community-Engaged Research Training.
