Epidemiology Faculty work with students during class presentation

The focus of the UAMS COPH Department of Epidemiology is to contribute to improving the health and promoting the well-being of Arkansans and the global community, by applying the principles and practices of epidemiology in education, research, and service.

The department currently includes a diverse and strong group of faculty members actively involved in research, teaching, and public health practice. While faculty activities in research and practice address a broad range of public health issues, the department has particular strength in the areas of chronic disease, infectious disease, cancer, molecular epidemiology, and childhood obesity.
