Next Grand Rounds Presentation:

Childhood Immunization as a Tool to Address Health Disparities

Tuesday, April 16, at 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., EDT

Syringe This session of Grand Rounds will examine how immunization has helped reduce infectious disease disparities among U.S. children, reducing infectious disease burdens in children from racial/ethnic populations, and how immunization has, as a result, contributed to health equity.
Vaccines protect both the people who receive them and those with whom they come in contact. Vaccines are responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that were once common in the US and around the world. Vaccine-preventable diseases have a costly impact, resulting in doctor's visits, hospitalizations, and premature deaths. More information.
Future Grand Rounds topics include hypertension, youth violence, and cancer screening
