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.
