Healthy People 2020 Impact Paper
Assignment Guidelines and Grading Rubric
The concepts of epidemiology provide the framework for the study of infectious and chronic diseases, which provides a rich source of data for the analysis of trends in disease and health. This assignment will offer the opportunity to explore the areas in need of preventative measures such as emerging infectious diseases, common chronic disease, environmental exposures, and emergency preparedness.
Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:
CO 3: Identify appropriate outcome measures and study designs applicable to epidemiological subfields such as infectious disease, chronic disease, environmental exposures, reproductive health, and genetics.
CO 6: Identify important sources of epidemiological data.
