E is for Epi LogoWelcome to the second edition of the E is for Epi training series developed by the North Carolina Institute for Public Health to introduce non-epidemiologists to the basic concepts of epidemiology. This edition is updated from content developed in 2005.

The CD-ROM and facilitator’s guidebook contain five modules that provide an introduction to the basics of epidemiology:

  • Epidemiology in the Context of Public Health
  • An Epidemiologist’s Toolkit
  • Descriptive and Analytic Epidemiology
  • Surveillance
  • Epidemiology Applications

Each module contains a PowerPoint™ presentation with detailed speaker’s notes, guided discussion questions for individuals or groups, and additional resources. These modules are designed to be used for computer-based self-study, or as a face-to-face teaching tool for trainers for lunch-and-learn seminars or in-service trainings.

E is for Epi is the first in a series of three training packages, followed by I is for Investigation and P is for Practice.
