Designed to fulfill the four essential learning outcomes of Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP)—a campaign of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU*)—Epidemiology 101 meets the needs of instructors teaching an overview or introductory course in epidemiology. Using a clear, cohesive writing style, Epidemiology 101, Second Edition covers the basics of infectious disease epidemiology, environmental epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, and psychosocial/behavioral epidemiology. Numerous tables and charts throughout the text capture the reader’s interest and enhance learning. Key Features: • Follows the basic Epidemiology 101 curriculum framework as outlined in the AAC&U and APTR Recommendations for Undergraduate Public Health Education • Offers current, tangible examples from the field such as recent disease outbreaks, bioterrorism, and uses of epidemiology for policy development. • Requires no prior familiarity with health-related fields or statistics. • End-of-chapter exercises provide access to a laboratory component for college science courses that require a laboratory.
