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 in the City for the schedule of talks that ran in June and July. There you will find PowerPoint presentations associated with each talk.
- 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.
Building a healthier Rochester takes expertise, enthusiasm, and creativity. It also takes knowledge of our city's history. Visit Project Rochester to learn more.
