Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
The GH CC believes that it is essential for students to be prepared to address the epidemiological transition. This course will ensure the GH Epi * Disease Conrol students have exposure and understanding of the epidemiology of chronic diseases. Currently, GH does not offer a course that focuses solely on chronic disease epidemiology and programs.
