* BMC’s Social Determinants of Health Grand Rounds is a new series of lectures that address the social, economic and environmental determinants of our patients’ health. By inviting experts in patient advocacy and health care policy to share their research and experience, they aim to foster a dialogue across departments and professions about the social context of our health care system.

Recap: February Grand Rounds: “Can Housing Act as a Vaccine?”

Our first buATP Advocacy Grand Rounds of the year took place on February 5th @ 11:30-12:30pm (in spite of the snow storm!) The discussion, titled “Can Housing Act as a Vaccine?”, was lead by Dr. Sandel, an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the BU Schools of Medicine and Public Health. After sharing how she became passionate about housing advocacy, Dr. Sandel described how a stable, decent and affordable home can act as a vaccine to keep kids and adults healthy now and in the future. Dr. Sandel also talked about the current national homeless crisis and deliberately left ample time for student questions to allow for an interactive discussion.

**Our next Grand Rounds will be on Monday, March 31st @ 4pm, so be on the lookout for these!**
