CDC Public Health Grand Rounds Cover Chlamydia

On May 20th, Partnership for Prevention’s work on the National Chlamydia Coalition (NCC) was showcased as part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) monthly Public Health Grand Rounds series. The session, entitled "Chlamydia Prevention: Challenges and Strategies for Reducing Disease Burden," featured presentations from active NCC members Dr. Gail Bolan, State STD Director for California and Dr. Gale Burstein, a pediatrician representing the Society of Adolescent Health and Medicine. Dr. Burstein’s presentation highlighted two of the NCC’s publications and outlined our activities aimed to increase chlamydia screening. The CDC’s Dr. Raul Romaguera’s presentation listed the NCC as one of four key partners working with the CDC to reduce chlamydia rates.
