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 & Prevention since our inception.
Health Talks and Events
In the Community:
We empower the community to become healthier through health talks and presentations offered in libraries, community centers, public schools, churches, and more. Visit Got Health? for a list of these upcoming community-based health talks.
We offer Public Health Grand Rounds (lectures), which facilitate the exchange of best practices and encourage 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. Click on the link above for upcoming talks.
We also run a summer series of Public Health Grand Rounds called "Summer in the City." Visit Summer Series for the schedule of past talks.
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.
At the Center, we work with students from the University of Rochester, as well as many other local colleges, to connect them with agencies engaged in the work of community health, enabling these students to have a variety of real-world experiences in the area of public health. For more information, contact Director of Education and Health Policy, Theresa Green, PhD, MBA,MS.
The Center for Community Health, along with URMC, functions as an informational resource, and also supports many educational programs and groups throughout the university community.
Building a healthier Rochester takes expertise, enthusiasm, and creativity. It also takes knowledge of our city's history. Visit Project Rochester to learn more.
