We are pleased to present the December session of CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds, “Community Water Fluoridation: A Vital 21st Century Public Health Intervention.” This session will be available via live webcast from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday, December 17 at 1 p.m. (EST) at

For nearly 70 years, community water fluoridation has been used to prevent tooth decay and improve oral health. Community water fluoridation (CWF) is not only safe and effective, but also cost-saving – yielding approximately $38 savings in dental treatment costs for every $1 invested. CDC has recognized water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century. While there has been a notable increase during the early part of this century in the number of persons with access to CWF, CDC along with state and local health departments and other public health partners face ongoing challenges in promoting and expanding CWF.

Please join us as we discuss CWF as a community-wide strategy that remains important for maintaining and promoting oral health.

Future Grand Rounds topics include measuring science impact, and youth violence.

Grand Rounds is available for Continuing Education.

ALL Continuing Education hours for PHGR are issued online through the CDC/ATSDR Training and Continuing Education Online system. If you have questions, e-mail 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.
