Course Description

This course is designed for graduate students at either the Master's or Ph.D. level, who are interested in conducting or better interpreting epidemiologic studies relating diet and nutrition to health and disease. There is an increasing awareness that various aspects of diet and nutrition may be important contributing factors in chronic disease. There are many important problems, however, in the implementation and interpretation of nutritional epidemiologic studies. The purpose of this course is to examine epidemiologic methodology in relation to nutritional measures, and to review the current state of knowledge regarding diet and other nutritional indicators as etiologic factors in disease. This course is designed to enable students to better conduct nutritional epidemiologic research and/or to better interpret the scientific literature in which diet or other nutritional indicators are factors under study.
