Students use epidemiologic models and theories of health promotion, risk reduction and illness prevention to teach, counsel, research and practice with vulnerable populations, especially adults and older adults. They analyze human diversity and social issues as they enlarge their understanding and use the multiple determinants of health in the design of culturally congruent health care plans and programs. In their clinical practice, they use epidemiological, social, and environmental data to design and implement nursing interventions and systems to promote and preserve the client’s or community’s health and lifestyle practices.
