Community Grand Rounds

In October of 2010 the Center for Community Health & Vitality (CCHV) launched its Community Grand Rounds series, with the support of the University of Chicago’s Institute for Translational Medicine and the Urban Health Initiative. The Community Grand Rounds aim to share the knowledge and research of the University with the community as a way to improve health on the South Side.

Actors on stage in community play "It Shoudda Been Me" "It Shoudda Been Me" is a community play that addresses violence and teen depression through drama. Written by Doriane Miller, MD, this play is also a tool for family support and therapeutic intervention. "It Shoudda Been Me" debuted as the first Community Grand Rounds event in October 2010.

Each Community Grand Rounds event includes networking opportunities, formal presentations and audience question and answer sessions. This proven format allows university investigators to talk with community members about existing research projects that can improve health and wellness. Past topics have included adolescent mental health, senior sexual health, gun violence, sexually transmitted infections, HIV and teen pregnancy, domestic violence, obesity, diabetes and asthma.

Each Grand Rounds event is hosted in a community setting, outside of the university walls. Topics are chosen by a well-rounded group of community members in partnership with university faculty.
