Grand Rounds Series

Science is not an individual sport—teams are the heart of public health and the backbone of ground-breaking achievements. The 2016-2017 Grand Rounds series brings together collaborators from across the Mailman School's disciplines and portfolios for discussions about how interdisciplinary teams are breaking down silos to to take on issues including obesity, climate change, and racism and violence. 

Events are held on select Wednesdays from 4–5:30 p.m. in the Alumni Auditorium located at 650 West 168th Street. Talks will be broadcast live online. Participate using #TeamScience on Twitter.
