Cognella Active Learning
is available with this title.
The second edition includes additional case studies and examples designed to help undergraduates understand the concepts and applications of the science of epidemiology. New chapters on public health prevention and outbreak investigations, and material on emerging issues in public health have been added to illustrate the impact epidemiology has on the fields of public health and clinical medicine. Each chapter includes a set of comprehension questions to ensure that students understand the key concepts that are presented. There are also challenge questions at the end of each chapter that provide students with application opportunities.
Specifically written for undergraduate students, the book does not assume a working knowledge of biostatistics. Understanding Epidemiology can be used in introductory epidemiology courses, as well as in public health study design and health sciences research methods courses.
