Course description: The course reviews current methods of measurement of dietary intake, presents the application of epidemiological methods to current studies of nutrition and disease, and discusses dissemination of findings in the context of public health recommendations. Students work in groups to lead three discussions of topical issues and controversies related to different diet and disease associations. These are spread over the course, and participation in the discussion is also considered an essential part of the class. The first part of the course is devoted to a detailed study of some special methodological problems of importance in nutritional epidemiology studies. In the second part, practicing epidemiologists will discuss their own research and the nutritional epidemiological principles involved. The emphasis will be on study design and interpretation of results.
