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.

Event changes/cancellations due to COVID-19

The University's Guidance on Events and Gatherings directs that "In order to promote social distancing, any nonessential gathering or event with more than 25 participants scheduled through April 17, 2020, should be canceled, postponed or moved to a virtual event. No new events should be scheduled at this time. Additionally, nonessential meetings or events of any size should be reconsidered."

As many events and gatherings will be impacted over the coming weeks, before attendingplease confirm whether an event has been canceled or moved online. Check  publichealth.pitt.edu/calendar for the latest updates and cancellations.
