Chronic/MCH/Oral Health: Chronic Disease

The Chronic Disease Epidemiology Subcommittee focuses on efforts to build capacity for chronic disease epidemiology. Members of the subcommittee include Chronic Disease Epidemiologists and professionals in state, local, tribal and territorial levels as well as private-sector and academic settings.

Accomplishments:

  • Building State-Based Chronic Disease Epidemiology Capacity Plan
    In June 2016, the subcommittee released a Chronic Disease Epidemiology Capacity Building plan to prioritize the chronic disease-specific recommendations from the 2013 National Assessment of Epidemiology Capacity. The results of this Chronic Disease capacity building plan suggests potential activities for implementing priority recommendations with the goal of increasing chronic disease epidemiology capacity at state and local health departments. This internal report will be used for planning future subcommittee work.
  • Chronic Disease Epidemiology Orientation Manual: A Resource for Applied Epidemiologists.
    The subcommittee developed an orientation manual for chronic disease epidemiologists, that provides guidance on the skills and knowledge with which chronic disease epidemiologists should be familiar. This information will encourage more uniform knowledge among chronic disease epidemiologists. The manual includes a guide for understanding the roles of a chronic disease epidemiologists; collaborating and integration with other programs; technical challenges faced by chronic disease epidemiologists including the identification of data sources and indicators; and data interpretation and dissemination.
  • 2013 National Assessment of Epidemiology Capacity: Findings and Recommendations for Chronic Disease, Maternal and Child Health, and Oral Health.
    The subcommittee also developed a chronic disease module that was included in the 2013 Epidemiology Capacity Assessment to gather more specific data about the chronic disease epidemiology workforce.
