The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Environmental Health Science and Practice (DEHSP), will be hosting a virtual workshop on applied epidemiology and environmental health from August 2 – 3, 2022. This exciting workshop will bring together environmental epidemiologists from state and local health departments, academia, and the CDC to discuss applied and innovative epidemiologic methods and how they can be used in environmental health research and practice.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experts regarding topics such as survey methodologies for disaster responses, cluster investigations, ecologic studies, and analytic methods to account for geospatial correlation.
The workshop will take place from 11:30 AM – 4:30 PM ET each day. All sessions will be held virtually.
The workshop is designed for epidemiologists, statisticians, and other environmental health professionals at state and local health departments and environmental health organizations.
