CHPR 125: The Role of Causal Inference, Study Design, and Outcomes in Community Research

(Same as CHPR 225) Provides foundational concepts and principles of epidemiology and other disciplines as they pertain specifically to research on the prevention of chronic disease. Focuses on application of this perspective in multiple disease and health behavior contexts to diverse communities across the life course. Provides foundational skills in epidemiology, including the measurement of disease and health behaviors, measures of association, and study design with close attention to minimizing error. Readings focus on the need and opportunity for interdisciplinary prevention and treatment approaches and illustrates how to conduct innovative research. Students enrolling for 4 units complete review paper on a specific topic mutually agreed upon with the instructor. Graduate students enroll in CHPR 225.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3-4
Instructors: Rosas, L. (PI)

CHPR 226: Promoting Health Over the Life Course: Multidisciplinary Perspectives (HUMBIO 126)

(HUMBIO students must enroll in HumBio 126.) Disease prevention and health promotion topics pertinent to different stages of the life span emphasizing healthy lifestyle and reducing risk factors in both individuals and communities. Focus is on scientific investigation, the application of behavioral science to risk reduction strategies, and the importance of health promotion as a social and economic imperative. Topics include: epidemiology of chronic diseases; social determinants of health, behavior change; obesity, nutrition, and stress; children, young adult, mid-life and aging health issues; health care delivery and public health system; workplace wellness programs; and other additional issues. Prerequisite: Human Biology core or equivalent, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3

CHPR 254: Disease control systems: epidemics, outbreaks, and modeling for public health (HUMBIO 154A)

(HumBio students must enroll in HumBio 154A.)This course teaches operations research and modeling techniques to improve public health programs and disease control systems. Students will engage in in-depth interdisciplinary study of disease detection and control strategies from a "systems science" perspective, which involves the use of common mathematical modeling and operations research techniques such as optimization, queuing theory, Markov and Kermack-McKendrick models, and microsimulation. Lectures and problem sets will focus on applying these techniques to classical public health dilemmas such as how to optimize screening programs, reduce waiting times for healthcare services, solve resource allocation problems, and compare macro-scale disease control strategies that cannot be easily evaluated through randomized trials. Readings will complement the lectures and problem sets by offering critical perspectives from the public health history, sociology, and epidemiology. In-depth case studies from non-governmental organizations, departments of public health, and international agencies will drive the course. Open to upper-division undergraduate students.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4
Instructors: Basu, S. (PI)
