Your Epidemiology research report seeks to identify one of the diseases that are currently on the rise in the United States. The first step is to identify the disease you’re going to research.
- List three diseases you’re interested in researching further.
- Write at least one paragraph for each disease listed explaining why you’d like to learn more about that disease. Why do you think the disease requires further study?
Your paper should:
- be at least 1 page in length.
- be free of spelling and grammar errors.

The purpose of this project is to enable you to understand, appreciate, and apply the concepts, methods, and tools of epidemiology in the prevention of an acute or chronic disease that is affecting our society. There has been considerable progress towards understanding the causes of many health conditions and applying control and prevention measures, yet many of these health conditions are still on the rise. There is still lot of work that needs to be done.
We need material, methods, and tools that can eradicate these conditions from our society and decease human suffering. The question is can we control or eradicate many of today’s health conditions that afflict our society? As an epidemiologist, you are not just identifying and measuring a health problem but recommending ways to implement control and prevention measures.
With this project you will identify one of the diseases that are currently on the rise in the United States. You will first look at the epidemiology of the disease or health condition. Then you will elaborate on past and current measures that have been adopted for its control and prevention. Finally, you will attempt to answer some of the reasons as to why we are unable to control it and what future holds for us in terms of controlling of the disease.
