NAME

Epidemiology

DESCRIPTION

Epidemiology is a field of medicine that studies the incidence, causes and effects of diseases in populations, and patterns within these. It has a key role in protecting public health and can provide valuable information for developing new medicines, such as revealing risk factors for a particular disease.
