Epidemiology I

SAR HS 300

Epidemiology examines the distribution of health and disease across the population, and considers the factors that affect health in order to answer important questions. Which group of people is more likely to experience a heart attack or develop diabetes? How do factors such as level of education and income affect our health and our life expectancy? This course covers the principles and methods used in public health research including the study designs typically used in health care; disease screening and infectious disease outbreak investigation. 4 cr. Tuition: $2640
