Discuss the importance of epidemiology to public health. Provide one current example of disease outbreak and how knowledge of its epidemiology can help health care professionals protect people from disease. (HINT: The CDC and WHO websites are excellent sources of information for this topic).
You may use the readings from your Boundless etext as a scholarly reference to complete Part II. Include a References section that lists these and any additional sources you used (refer to the Background page). For any additional research you do to complete your assignment, please use scholarly references such as a peer-reviewed journal article or a government-sponsored or university-sponsored website. As you read through your sources, take notes from your sources and then write your paper in your own words, describing what you have learned from your research. Direct quotes should be limited and must be designated by quotation marks. Paraphrased ideas must give credit to the original author, for example (Murray, 2014).
