"Got Health?" Talks
The Center for Community Health & Prevention offers a series of FREE health talks called “Got Health?” to help community members get and stay healthy. Got Health is co-sponsored by the Center and the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County. The talks cover basic health information and are delivered in easy-to-understand language, with plenty of time for questions and answers. They take place on the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at the Central Library, with occasional extra presentations. Throughout the series, presenters from our Center, the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), and community organizations help to inform the community about health issues and highlight the link between research and community health improvement.
Please join us to learn more about many interesting health topics. If you can't attend, the talks are streamed live by the Central Library, so you can tune in on Facebook for the live broadcast or view the video later.
On Thursday, February 28, Howard Beckman, MD, FACP, FACH, clinical professor of Medicine and Family Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry and director of Strategic Innovation at Common Ground Health, will present How to Talk to Your Doctor from 12:10-12:50 pm in the Kate Gleason Auditorium of the Central Library, 115 South Avenue, Rochester, NY. He will help you learn how to get the most from your doctor's appointment, including how to partner effectively with your doctor, explain your needs for the visit, share information effectively and advocate for the best results. Parking is available in the Court Street garage, which is connected to the library. The talk will also be streamed live by the Central Library on Facebook.
