You receive an offer for a position as a new public health professional for the public health organization that you used during your interview exercise. You are very excited to begin your career in your first role as a public health professional. You are in the “assessment” phase of your new role and learning the various venues of the organization, including the purpose of the agency, population of focus, and current public health programs the agency has initiated. During your first week of orientation, you have learned a great deal about the organization’s various departments including Program Planning, Policy Development, and the Research Department if they have one, (which houses the biostatistics and epidemiology subdivisions). In particular, you are interested in learning more about the Research Department, particularly the types of current research studies conducted to address the needs of the agency’s target population. Please elaborate what you have learned about your agency’s research studies and how epidemiology and biostatistics are used. Please differentiate between these two core sciences within your post. If no studies are conducted, what are your thoughts about possible studies that could be conducted or ways in which biostatistics or epidemiology could be used to address the agency’s target population needs?
