Your Epidemiology research report seeks to identify one of the diseases that are currently on the rise in the United States. The next step is to research and define future strategies of prevention and control of the disease.
In 2-3 paragraphs, summarize how researchers and healthcare workers are modifying the current approach(es) to overcome issues with prevention and control of the disease.
In 2-3 paragraphs, describe some promising approaches to controlling and preventing the disease that you think should be explored further by researchers and healthcare workers.
List at least two new research sources you’ve identified that you think have information relevant to the disease you’re researching. These sources should be different from those already cited. Include URLs to specific articles or Web pages.
Your paper should:
be at least 1 page in length.
cite research sources in APA format.
be free of spelling and grammar errors.

The purpose of this project is to enable you to understand, appreciate, and apply the concepts, methods, and tools of epidemiology in the prevention of an acute or chronic disease that is affecting our society. There has been considerable progress towards understanding the causes of many health conditions and applying control and prevention measures, yet many of these health conditions are still on the rise. There is still lot of work that needs to be done.
We need material, methods, and tools that can eradicate these conditions from our society and decease human suffering. The question is can we control or eradicate many of today’s health conditions that afflict our society? As an epidemiologist, you are not just identifying and measuring a health problem but recommending ways to implement control and prevention measures.
With this project you will identify one of the diseases that are currently on the rise in the United States. You will first look at the epidemiology of the disease or health condition. Then you will elaborate on past and current measures that have been adopted for its control and prevention. Finally, you will attempt to answer some of the reasons as to why we are unable to control it and what future holds for us in terms of controlling of the disease.
