7-1 Discussion: Making Connections Between the Field of Epidemiology and Policy

 To begin, research a news article about a policy that impacts population health. Some topic ideas include policies relating to physical activity, drinking and driving, texting and driving, and nutrition.

In your initial post, address the following:

  • Using the example you found, discuss how the specific policy either positively or negatively impacts public health. Be sure to link to the specific article for your peers’ review.

In your responses to your peers, do you agree or disagree with their conclusions that the policy either positively or negatively impacts public health? Why or why not? Also, consider the policy they found and how it relates to the field of epidemiology. Does the policy connect to an alternative course concept not mentioned in the original post? For example, consider the concepts of measurement, disparities, and determinants. How do they relate to the specific health issue, and how do they impact the policies?
