The pandemic has spotlighted public health professionals’ work. Disaster epidemiologists are specialists in applying public health, social medicine, and community care to the prevention of, response to, and rehabilitation from disaster-caused health problems. Whether the threat is a novel pathogen, severe weather, tectonic event, act of terrorism, or technological crisis, the call is made to disaster epidemiologists. They strive to determine disease causation, identify highest risk individuals, determine how to control or eliminate the greatest threats, and ideally, prevent the disaster from recurring. Join us to explore the public health’s disease detectives’ crucial role and how they prevent illness, ease suffering, and save lives.
