University of Rochester faculty, staff, and doctoral students are invited to a joint symposium that will serve as a bridge between the important work teams are leading, both at the Medical Center and the River Campus. The half-day event is a forum to share updates and identify where our work intersects to promote collaboration and create synergy.

Join the Center for Community Health & Prevention, the Office of Health Equity and the Warner School of Education for an in-person discussion followed by a networking session and poster symposium with prizes.

  • Don't miss the opportunity to meet your next collaborator in our "speed dating" session!
  • Enter the poster contest: Submit the title and description of your work, as well as your bio and whether you'll be participating in speed dating by March 1. This will allow participants time to print their posters after notification of acceptance. 

David Linehan, M.D., dean of the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry and URMC CEO, and Sarah Peyre, Ed.D., dean and professor of the Warner School of Education and Human Development, will deliver opening remarks, follwed by keynote speaker Silvia Sorensen, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Opthamology.

Dr. Sörensen is the director of the Laboratory for Population Health, Disparities, and Intervention Research (LAPHDIR) in which new research and community health projects are hatched with the help of a Community Health-project Advisory Board (CHAB). She has a keen interest in community-partnered research and is a co-founder of the Aging Well Initiative community collaboration with faith-based organizations. She is also a member of several community coalitions focused on the empowerment of underserved groups in order to reduce health disparities. 

Light morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.
