Summary

Epidemiology for Public Health Practice, Second Edition has updated data and statistics which are essential to understanding the importance of epidemiology to public health. A new chapter has been added on molecular and genetic epidemiology and the research methods chapter has been expanded and split into two chapters: cross-sectional and case-control studies, and cohort designs. Case studies throughout the book also have been updated to reflect how epidemiologic principles are applied to current real-life situations and settings.
