CBIOL 3600 Epidemiology

This course introduces students to the epidemiological methods used in the study of today’s health-related problems. This course will integrate several different perspectives to help students gain a more complete understanding of the determinants of health and illness (e.g. genetic and epi-genetic factors behind chronic diseases; social psychological factors related to race, class, and gender; and the link between specific environmental toxins and asthma, in addition to other health conditions). The application of these perspectives to specific clinical and population data provide the foundation for students to identify the potential causal effects of modifiable risks and exposures in an effort to prevent negative health outcomes and promote well-being in communities.
