CDC’s Goal for Grand Rounds

In Public Health Grand Rounds, the "patient" is defined as the community and the "presenting problem" is defined as a public health issue challenging the community and requiring its informed response. As in medical grand rounds, a panel of specialists will be assembled to provide the most current information related to the case and to assess the problem from their professional perspective, knowledge and experience. The goal of Public Health Grand Rounds is to promote a leadership-level national dialogue on public health issues of strategic significance.  Top of Page
