Public Health Grand Rounds The Public Health Grand Rounds are jointly sponsored by the Center for Community Health and the Department of Public Health Sciences. The rounds are intended to demonstrate and highlight the link between research and community health improvement. Through this series, UR faculty, staff and students, and community partners can hear about community-based initiatives to reduce health inequities, improve access to care, and tackle some of our toughest health challenges. Join us for lively discussions with some of Rochester’s community health champions and their UR partners.
