Epidemiology News

Dr. David Kleinbaum, professor in the Department of Epidemiology, recently released the epidemiology teaching tool ActivEpi Web. This free online textbook includes 15 lessons with narrated instructional expositions that use video and animation; interactive study questions and quizzes; and homework exercises. 

Dr. Kleinbaum—who has written seven textbooks and taught for 40 years—had previously released a CD-ROM version of the book in 2001. This modernized version will appeal to a new generation of learners. “I consider this text an important educational gift to anyone, anywhere in the world and hope it has a major impact on education in the health, medical and mathematical/statistical fields,” says Kleinbaum.
