Mission and Activities
The mission of CAAS Rounds is to bring together scientists from different disciplines and perspectives (e.g., psychologists, physicians, health care professionals) in order to stimulate expansive thinking, foster social interaction, and promote new collaborations at Brown. CAAS Rounds is a highly-regarded and well-attended series that welcomes the participation of staff, students, trainees, and faculty at Brown and its affiliated hospitals.
Recent talks include "Qualitative Research with Frequent Marijuana Users" by Dr. Elizabeth Aston and "Skills to Enhance Positivity in Suicidal Adolescents" by Dr. Shirley Yen.
In an effort to build community within the Center and beyond, the CAAS Rounds committee coordinates a biannual donation drive for various community-based organizations or non-profits. Click here or on our "Community Events" tab for a list of our past and present partner organizations.
Each week, CAAS Rounds also offers the opportunity for attendees to be entered into a drawing to win a raffle prize. Prizes vary from week to week, but often consist of gift cards to local establishments or cool gifts!
CAAS Rounds takes place at 121 South Main Street, Providence, RI in Room 245 on Fridays at noon (almost every week) during the academic year.
