[ Previous | Index | Next ]

EPID 514

3 credit hours, offered annually

This course is an introduction to the core theories, concepts, methods, and findings in the social epidemiologic analysis of both acute and chronic diseases. It focuses on describing and furthering understanding of the associations between social class, race and ethnicity, psychosocial factors, stress, and community characteristics in the incidence and progression of common diseases. The approach taken includes a discussion of both upstream factors and downstream factors, covering both policy and intervention issues as well as the more proximal behavioral and biological mechanisms that link social and psychosocial factors to health outcomes.
