Epidemiology Program

Team of epidemiologists developing set of anti-epidemic measures. Scientist with magnifying glass studies structure of viruses.


Wake County Health and Human Service's Epidemiology Program works to understand the distribution and determinants of health-related events in communities in Wake County and applies findings to control such events. We strive to accomplish our mission through three major approaches:

  • Research: We investigate and study areas of interest over time to be informed and knowledgeable of trends.
  • Data Analysis: We review, clean, transform and model data to discover useful information and determine the extent to which different interventions may be effective.
  • Education: We communicate findings to the public to control health-related events in communities.
