Epidemiology is the science of population health, aiming to understand the key causes of health and disease. Epidemiology is also a pragmatic discipline: our science must translate into actions that prevent disease and promote health on a broad scale. This digital space is intended to be a forum for an ongoing epidemiology conversation, providing up-to-date resources useful to trainees and practicing epidemiologists alike.

The site is anchored around a book, Epidemiology matters: a new introduction to methodological foundations, and we include supplementary materials for readers of the book. All the supplementary material is publicly available and may be of interest to others who do not use the book. Follow us on twitter @epimatters.

 

Epidemiology Matters is also available as a digital course in the Columbia University Epidemiology and Population Health Summer Institute each June.
