04 Jun Epidemiology the backbone of public health

Epidemiology underpins everything we do in public health and global health. Epidemiology is more than just research methods and qualitative and quantitative study design. Its about understanding the distribution of states of health and the exposures that cause them. And its about causation. Epidemiology is about population health, outbreaks, pandemics, epidemics. And of course its includes non-communicable diseases too.

    I am accusing Health Organisations of (intentionall??) neglect. I will change mind if a scientist give me logical arguments against.
    A FATAL HYGIENE-MEDICAL MISTAKE CAUSES ACQUIRED HOSPITAL INFECTIONS and UTIs. Wiping, no matter its direction, is, in anyway, dangerous, particularly to women. Τhe DUST that comes from the feces film left after wiping, full of microbes, THROUGH DRYING, FRICTION and AIR, travels to the near uro-genital organs, causing UTI and later to the air and any surface of the house or worse of the HOSPITAL, in the case of in hospital patients, causing the often LETHAL ACQUIRED HOSPITAL INFECTIONS. Keep in mind that the in Hospital weakened ill or old patients are not able even to wipe properly, particularly if ΗEMORRHOIDS coexist. If, correctly, the dust during construction works in Hospitals, is thought as dangerous for its microbes, it is so obviously contradictory, that the dust coming from dried feces, is not!! WHO and Drs it is urgent to take some action, as patients and staff are on every day danger . Zisis Kontogounis, retired Medical Dr.

    Hey, why the cut on the Chiropractors? Why we got to be dividing the ways of health and healing. Lets build bridges, rather than divide. Without faith, the body can't be healed. Faith is a starting point for all things. Come on Greg… 😉 said with much love and respect… -Aharon W Smith

    Hello Dr. Martin. Thanks for your video about Epi. I'm the first one in my community and family to be in PH and Epi so I was looking for a video to share with my professional social justice network, community, and friends/family. This video has great graphics. It has a great goal to cover the basic of Epi. Some feedback are that the speaker's speed is quite fast so I used closed captioning. I understood the concepts mentioned however I've completed biostats, epidemiology, advanced epi, etc. while I've been working on my MPH-MPHP with a focus on epidemiology. I would recommend attempting to break this video apart or simplify because it covers quite a lot. It could potentially be a summary for new students as they start their first epi course however there are quite a lot of terms that may soar over their heads. Finally, I was confused with the divisions in the video. I'll watch again however I believe I heard three sections: 1) intro, 2) advertisement for Univ. of Maryland, and 3) intro then epi review. The large section on Univ. of Maryland seems very out of place and confusing in this place as well as added a chunk of time that I found detracting from the goal. Overall, I thought it was a good start but I would not (at this point) really recommend it to my fellow epi students nor to students I meet along the way who are thinking of taking epi or focusing on the subject. I wish you the best and will explore your other videos.
