About Epidemiology

The mission of the Department of Epidemiology is to contribute to the reduction of the disease burden in human populations through research, education, and service.

Our research mission is met by study into the risk of disease associated with inherent, acquired, social, and environmental factors, and by the development and application of methods to alleviate that risk ranging from primary prevention through service provision to modification of social systems. Faculty and students pursue this mission through research projects conducted both by individuals and by multidisciplinary teams.

The department’s service mission requires that faculty and students provide service as advisors and consultants to health professionals and agencies at the state, national, and international levels.
