Initiated in 2008, Grand Rounds is a community conversation on the science, education and practice of public health. The series provides an intellectual space within which to explore national and global public health challenges and the innovative approaches needed to transform the public's health in the 21st century.
Each year, we select a theme for Grand Rounds to view from multiple dimensions and disciplines. In commemoration of the grim 400th anniversary of the first Africans sold into bondage in North America, Grand Rounds will examine how inequality has been sewn into the fabric of American society with particular impact on health across populations. We invite you to explore these themes with us over the next year.
This event will conclude the day-long commemoration, 400 Years of Inequality: A Call to Action. Please check the calendar for other events on this day.
