CDC Holds Public Health Grand Rounds on Autism Spectrum Disorders

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is holding its first ever Public Health Grand Rounds on autism spectrum disorders. Please mark your calendar for April 22, from 1-2 pm EST, for CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds “Autism Spectrum Disorder: From Numbers to Know-how.” This event features presentations on autism etiology, surveillance, early identification and screening, and evidence-based intervention. Please share this announcement with others.


There are two ways to participate in this event:

1) A live webcast will be available. Visit http://www.cdc.gov/about/grand-rounds/ to watch the event.

2) Attend in person at CDC’s Tom Harkin Global Communication Center, 1600 Clifton Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30333. Due to security measures at CDC’s campus, non-CDC staff who wish to attend the session in person must have prior clearance and a U.S. state-issued photo ID (e.g., driver’s license or U.S. passport). Please send your request to attend in person to the CDC Grand Rounds Team.

The Public Health Grand Rounds is a monthly webcast created to foster discussion on major public health issues. Each session focuses on key challenges related to a specific health topic, and explores cutting-edge scientific evidence and potential impact of different interventions. The Grand Rounds sessions also highlight how CDC and its partners are already addressing these challenges and discuss the recommendations for future research and practice.

You can receive free training and continuing education opportunities/contact hours for watching Grand Rounds. Visit http://www.cdc.gov/about/grand-rounds/index.htm to register.
