Grand Rounds

Through this series, UR faculty, staff, 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. Public Health Grand Rounds (PHGR) are a collaborative effort between the Center for Community Health & Prevention and the Department of Public Health Sciences, and are intended to highlight the link between research, clinical medicine and community health improvement.   

Public Health Grand Rounds are held virtually via Zoom on Fridays, from noon – 1 p.m. (unless noted otherwise). Join us for lively discussions with some of Rochester’s community health champions, both URMC faculty and staff, as well as expert community leaders. If you cannot attend in person, recordings for most sessions can be found below.

You can earn CME credit at PHGR! This activity is certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM *

This seminar series is funded in part by the University of Rochester Clinical & Translational Science Institute via grant UL1 TR002001 from National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Additional financial support is provided by gifts to the Department of Public Health Sciences and an endowment to the Center for Community Health & Prevention by Brewster C. Doust, M.D. All support is greatly appreciated.

Pre-registration is required for this event.

Join us at noon Friday, February 3.

Our first Public Health Grand Rounds of the season will feature University of Rochester Provost David Figlio, PhD, who will present "How Population-Level Matched Birth-School Administrative Records Can Address Public Health and Education Policy Questions." 

This presentation highlights the recent scholarship of David Figlio, who introduced matched birth-school data to the field of economics to address public health and education policy questions. Figlio will present a survey of his research on early health and later educational outcomes, as well as the use of sibling comparisons (facilitated by matched birth records) to study the policy-relevant issues in education.

Register today.
