Improve Population Health with Epidemiology
Since the beginning of the 20th century, life expectancy in America has grown from 48 years of age to 78 years, and much of that success is due to public health and discoveries using epidemiology. While the typical American’s lifespan has increased, chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, and lung disease have also increased.
Medicine and medical interventions are helpful sources of treatment, but epidemiology can help us find out why disease occurs and use population health and prevention as an alternative to treatment.
