Podiatry and the exploding growth of the aging population
from Podiatry Management
Much of epidemiological research is devoted to searching for causal factors influencing one’s risk of disease. The goal is to identify a cause so that appropriate public health action might be taken. While epidemiology initially focused exclusively on epidemics and communicable disease, it expanded in the mid-20th century to include chronic diseases, injuries, birth defects, maternal and child health, occupational health, and environmental health.
