Improve Population Health with Epidemiology
Epidemiology, the science of public and population health, is a field of disease detectives who conduct studies to better understand the health status of populations. Epidemiology studies describe the occurrence of disease in communities–who, what, when, where–and determine how and why disease occurs. The findings of these studies are then used to control and prevent disease and protect and improve the public’s health.
Epidemiologists study all health phenomena, such as infectious diseases, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, maternal and child health, substance abuse, and injuries. They also work with policy makers, clinicians, and other health professionals to eliminate health disparities and improve health equity locally, nationally, and globally.Apply Now
