Grand Rounds

What is Public Health Grand Rounds?

Grand Rounds provides socialization opportunities to our students to the broader profession of public health through engagement in substantive programs on a wide range of topics that reflect the breadth of public health. Students will be able to interact with researchers and practitioners from other settings and universities around the world. Opportunities include interdisciplinary approaches to complex public health problems with lectures, symposia, and conferences outside of the classroom.

Historical Epidemiology and Global Disease Challenges
Tue 4/2/2019 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Historical epidemiology—the study of past disease control interventions and their impacts on the dynamics of disease transmission—holds the promise of creating a more robust and more nuanced foundation for global public health decision-making by developing an empirical record from which we can draw historical lessons. It can unearth past successes and failures in order to suggest alternative or hybrid approaches to the control of epidemic or endemic disease processes. What should be done to institutionalize its practice?
