"Got Health?" Talks

Audience of people

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.
