We are pleased to present the August session of CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds, “High-Impact HIV Prevention.” This session will be available via live webcast from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday, August 21 at 1 p.m. (EDT) at

This session of Grand Rounds will explore high-impact HIV prevention in the United States. Because HIV incidence is stable and effective treatment exists to prevent illness and death, a growing number of persons—over 1.1 millionare living with HIV. The growing number with the potential to transmit HIV presents a challenge for prevention. At the same time, recent scientific breakthroughs in treatment, prevention, and monitoring disease have equipped us with an unprecedented number of effective tools to prevent infection. High impact HIV prevention seeks the most effective distribution of limited resources, considering the effectiveness and cost of prevention interventions and the feasibility of full-scale implementation.

Please join us for this powerful session of Grand Rounds in which we will explore the science behind high impact HIV prevention. New directions in monitoring the burden of HIV and resource allocation modeling of HIV prevention interventions will be presented as well as the White House’s ongoing implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy to improve HIV prevention and care.

Tentative future Grand Rounds topics include explaining the unexplained in clinical infectious diseases, injection safety and disability. Email your questions about this topic before or during the session.

For CDC staff unable to attend the event: 
The session will be available on IPTV and Envision.  To join by Envision, reserve a conference room and make the Envision request or use your local room scheduling process to schedule Envision.
For non-CDC staff or those outside of the CDC firewall:
A live external webcast will be available. Presentations are archived and posted 48 hours after each session. Due to security measures at CDC’s Roybal campus, non-CDC staff who wish to attend these sessions in person must have prior clearance and a U.S. state-issued photo ID (e.g., driver’s license, U.S. passport).
Names of non-CDC staff (both domestic and international) should be submitted to the Grand Rounds Team. Please note that all information for international visitors must be submitted at least 10 days in advance.

Grand Rounds is available for Continuing Education.

ALL Continuing Education hours for PHGR are issued online through the CDC/ATSDR Training & Continuing Education Online system. If you have questions, email or call Learner Support at 1-800-418-7246 (1-800-41TRAIN).
Those who attend PHGR either in person, Envision, IPTV, or “web on demand” and who wish to receive Continuing Education must complete the online seminar evaluation. Thirty days from the initial seminar the course number will change to WD1640 and will be available for continuing education until January 21, 2014. The course code for PHGR is PHGR10.

Target Audience: Physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, pharmacists, veterinarians, certified health education specialists, laboratorians, others


  1. List key measures of burden of disease involving morbidity, mortality, and/or cost.
  2. Describe evidence-based preventive interventions and the status of their implementations.
  3. Identify one key prevention science research gap.
  4. Name one key indicator by which progress and meeting prevention goals is measured.

CE certificates can be printed from your computer immediately upon completion of your online evaluation. A cumulative transcript of all CDC/ATSDR CE’s obtained through the TCE Online System will be maintained for each user. We hope that this will assist CDC staff and other public health professionals to fulfill the requirements for their professional licenses and certificates.
