Become A Disease Investigator?
June 12th, 2020 by INMED
Today’s ongoing COVID-19 crisis shines a bright light on little-recognized field of science: epidemiology. These are professionally trained disease investigators known as epidemiologists. Normally, epidemiologists are silently working in government health agencies and research institutions, tracking the status of health, the development of health issues, and design of interventions to protect and improve health. Sound virtuous, doesn’t it?
Our COVID-19 pandemic has prompted leaders from government, industry, and health to urgently call upon epidemiologists for counsel in tracking the disease, answering its many critical questions, and rapidly developing modalities to prevent, detect, and curb COVID-19’s advance.
