The Epidemiology of Lupus: Racial and Gender Differences Lupus is more common in women and people of color, especially African Americans. However, previous epidemiology studies on lupus have had limitations and the exact number of people living with the disease, how many new cased develop each year, and which groups are at highest risk for developing the disease is not well known. The Lupus Foundation of America was instrumental in advocating for funds to support population based lupus registries as part of a national epidemiological study on lupus. Dr. Joseph McCune of the University of Michigan is leading an effort in Michigan to identity every case of lupus in Wayne County, as part of a broader effort to determine the national incidence and prevalence of lupus. In this video he discusses some preliminary data and how this study contributes to advancing lupus research and treatment.
OBESITY for HMI 7544: Managerial Epidemiology Obesity is a disease that today is characterized as a growing epidemic. Defined by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), obesity is seen as prevalent in persons with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. The prevalence of obesity in the United States is approximately 33% of the population. The causes of obesity are numerous and include: sedentary lifestyle, eating habits, lack of exercise, and genetic predisposition. Obesity has been connected to several health conditions, including: type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. This video was created in hopes to combat some of the causes mentioned above. Through creative expression we hope to reach a target audience of people that encompass ages ranging from 8 to 25. We feel that our rap will be attractive to this age group and perhaps will lead to a greater circulation in the long run. The affects that obesity has on our population are severe and cannot be taken lightly. Through videos like these hopefully the prevalence and incidence of this epidemic can be mitigated. Introduction: About two-thirds of the risk of obesity may be genetic, but, as with most other predispositions, that risk is expressed only with exposure to lifestyle factors that are controllable.(1) Many people do not want to change their health-threatening behavior even when they are quite aware of the risks they are taking.(1) Lyrics: OBESITY It's such an epidemic that it makes me cry. So many people, dying ...

The Caribbean Epidemiology Centre - CAREC CAREC, a public health information, service and consulting organisation, dedicated to being the best at providing information that people need to improve health and prevent disease in the Caribbean. CAREC is administered on behalf of 21 Member Countries by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the World Health Organization's Regional Office for the Americas. CAREC enjoys an international reputation for its work in support of Public Health in the Caribbean. Under a Multilateral Agreement CAREC provides laboratory reference and epidemiology services to 21 Member Countries. The need for such a Caribbean Centre was first recognized in the early 1970's by Dr. Eric Williams, then Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. CAREC came into existence in 1975, following an endorsement by the Caribbean Health Ministers' Conference held in Dominica in 1973. Under a Bilateral Agreement (Annex) with PAHO, Trinidad and Tobago took up the role of host country because of the existing strength of the Trinidad Regional Virus Laboratory and well established links with research agencies such as the British Medical Research Council. CAREC today occupies a complex of buildings in Federation Park, Port of Spain, the capital city of Trinidad and Tobago. This includes security laboratories and a variety of specialized units such as an experimental mosquito colony. Several epidemiological databases are maintained within a LAN infrastructure. Support facilities include a lecture theatre, a ...

Epidemiological Modeling Another of our key malaria projects is Epidemiological Modeling. This is a highly detailed computer simulation that predicts how the disease spreads at local, regional and global scales. The model takes into account many variables that affect transmission such as temperature, population, transportation, and the use of vaccines, bed nets and even innovations such as the Photonic Fence. Mathematician, Philip Eckhoff, and computational scientist, Karima Nigmatulina, explain the project and software. Learn more at

The Genetic Epidemiology of Autism Reexamine the manner in which autistic symptoms— as they are currently understood—aggregate in the family members of individuals affected by autism. The results of the latest wave of large-scale studies have significant implications for understanding mechanisms of inheritance in autism, the manner in which genetic variation relates to behavioral variation, appropriate selection of subjects in genetic and neurobiologic research, and clearer understanding of what constitutes sibling "recurrence."

Epidemiologists Career Search Epidemiologists Medical scientists research human diseases to improve human health. Most medical scientists conduct biomedical research and development to advance knowledge of life processes and living organisms, including viruses, bacteria, and other infectious agents. Past research has resulted in advances in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of many diseases. Basic medical research continues to build the foundation for new vaccines, drugs, and treatment procedures. Medical scientists engage in laboratory research, clinical investigation, technical writing, drug application review, and related activities. Some medical scientists specialize in epidemiology. This branch of medical science investigates and describes the causes and spread of disease and develops the means for prevention or control. Epidemiologists may study many different illnesses, often focusing on major infectious diseases such as influenza or cholera. Epidemiologists can be separated into two groups—research and clinical. Research epidemiologists conduct research in an effort to eradicate or control infectious diseases. Many work on illnesses that affect the entire body, such as AIDS or typhus, while others focus on localized infections such as those of the brain, lungs, or digestive tract. Research epidemiologists work at colleges and universities, schools of public health, medical schools, and independent research firms. For example, Federal Government agencies, such as the US ...
