Anne E. Dyson Memorial Grand Rounds & Child Advocacy Forum

The Seventeenth Annual Anne E. Dyson Memorial Grand Rounds
and Child Advocacy Forum

The Seventeenth Annual Anne E. Dyson Memorial Grand Rounds and Child Advocacy Forum took place on Wednesday, March 8th in the Class of ’62 Auditorium at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Attendees were invited to a panel discussion entitled, “What do we do with the answers?” Connecting families with resources after we ask about household conditions and social determinants of health. Panelists from some of the area’s community-based organizations (CBOs) addressed the primary difficulties surrounding a fictional but plausible case study about a local teenager needing services beyond medical care. Watch the panel discussion here.

Dyson Day Activities

Immediately following the panel discussion was a networking session intended to promote connections between CBOs and area medical professionals. Representatives from MVP Health, Hillside Family Services and more participated. Simultaneously, our CARE residents hosted a poster session where they explained the community projects on which they have been working.

The PLC Advocacy flash card, which was translated into Spanish as one of our residents’ CARE projects, was made available to attendees in both English and Spanish. This flash card has become an important reference tool for medical practitioners throughout the area. To print a copy of this flash card in English and Spanish, click here.

A demonstration of the Kids Thrive 585 website, which started as a CARE project a few years ago, was shown by Dr. Megan Callanan Lasaponara, CARE alumna and director of the organization. The mission of the organization is “helping kids thrive with access to Greater Rochester resources.”
