Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“ ... Provides rich examples of epidemiologic studies that not only teach and engage the reader but also provide an appreciation for the history, successes, and pitfalls of epidemiologic studies.”
The Permanente Journal on the Fourth Edition

Written for physicians, medical students, and other health care professionals, this concise, often-cited text explains epidemiologic concepts clearly and simply, illustrating them with clinically relevant case studies. It bridges the gap between clinicians and epidemiologists, showing the relationship between individual patients and the groups to which they belong, in epidemiologists’ eyes.

You'll also find examination of the relevance of epidemiology to the study of socially and politically important issues, such as changing health care systems and environmental hazards.
