Course Description

Individuals are living longer than ever thanks to improved science, technology, and healthcare during the last century. Chronic diseases—with multiple risk factors and long latency periods—have replaced acute infections as the top causes of morbidity and mortality. This course is designed to reinforce epidemiologic, research, and public health concepts as they relate to the study of chronic disease. Topics will include: the clinical presentation of chronic conditions; epidemiologic methods used in prevention, control, and surveillance efforts; and the current status of epidemiologic research into various conditions (cancer and cardiovascular, respiratory, neurodegenerative, and mental health conditions) and their associated risk factors.
