Public Health Grand Rounds: Rochester Equity

Helen Wood Hall Auditorium School of Nursing
Friday, February 1, 2013
12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

"Rochester Equity: Working Together to End Racial Disparities in Birth Outcomes," presented by Sherita Bullock, community relations manager at Perinatal Network of Monroe County.

Socio-economic and racial health disparities in birth outcomes continue to persist in Monroe County. In the city of Rochester, these disparities are particularly pronounced in specific zip codes, namely a sector often referred to as the "Crescent."  Birth outcomes are associated with particular health conditions that need to be addressed if disparities are to be ameliorated and eventually eliminated. To this end, the Perinatal Network of Monroe County has been involved in community-wide efforts to address these issues in the target areas.

A light lunch will be provided. ASL interpreters or other accomodations are available upon request. Contact Tracie Norman with request.
