About Karen Cowgill

My field is epidemiology, which is the study of the distribution and determinants of disease; it is considered the foundational science of public health and is applied in the prevention and control of disease, identification of risk factors for and causes of disease, and formation of health policy. My particular interests are the health of mothers and children, infectious diseases, and global health.
