Historical Epidemiologic Perspectives
Epidemiology for the Advanced Practice Nurse: A Population Health Approach
History is the foundation of the future. If one is not to repeat the errors of the past, one must be knowledgeable about the historical developments that have led to the current modern-day state of affairs. The history of epidemiology has been influenced by many historic leaders from a diverse background of professions and disciplines. These historic leaders shared the purposeful mission to prevent and control health-related events with the desire to promote health among populations. This chapter focuses on historic leaders and events that have shaped modern day epidemiology.
