Population Health Scholars Program

The Population Health Scholars Program, one of the center's two scholars programs, provides training and mentoring in community and population health research at Mayo Clinic. The three-year program, which welcomed six new Mayo clinician-scholars in 2014, provides a unique opportunity to learn how to obtain grants, conduct research and publish study findings that advance population health science.

Population approaches to vaccine delivery

The Olmsted County Community Health Needs Assessment lists vaccine-preventable diseases as one of the top five community health priorities. Vaccines are among the most cost-effective clinical preventive services. The Population Health Science Program is working on a number of projects related to vaccine delivery in the community, including:

  • Exploring changes in pediatric influenza rates over time
  • Examining the effectiveness of influenza vaccines in preventing pandemic influenza infection
  • Determining immunization coverage among children of Somali immigrants and refugees
  • Identifying multilevel influences on HPV vaccination initiation and completion
  • Evaluating response to immunization recall letters

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
