This year's meeting theme is "Addressing Systemic Determinants of Health." We will focus on the role that epidemiology can play in identifying and addressing the interconnected determinants of health and disease that act at varying levels of an ecosocial framework. New epidemiologic research must learn how to synthesize knowledge and insights from genetics, biology, psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, political science, environmental sciences, policy sciences, and modeling in order to address systemic determinants of health and disease more fully at local and global levels.
Your organization will be recognized on the ACE website, quarterly newsletter, and Annual Meeting program.
You are invited to participate in all meeting functions except for ticketed events, such as preconference workshops.
Over the past three decades, epidemiology, has matured into a field of its own, as both an academic discipline and a field of practice in a large variety of health agencies, hospitals, and research institutions. The past twenty years have been marked by a significant increase in the number of individuals who have chosen epidemiology as a career or who have entered epidemiology from such disciplines as medicine, statistics, sociology, genetics, and biology.
The American College of Epidemiology was incorporated in 1979 to develop criteria for professional recognition of epidemiologists and to address their professional concerns. The College has benefited from the leadership of the leading epidemiologists in the world.
