Epidemiology Committee

Mission Statement

To promote the application of epidemiological principles and methods for the purpose of solving poultry health issues. The committee will support the AAAP by promoting topics and symposiums for which epidemiology offers a significant contribution. We will also promote epidemiological research by encouraging oral and poster presentations at annual meetings, making sure that such research is properly considered when awards are given. We are also here to support AAAP by producing or participating in editing documents relevant to the AAAP membership. We will assist AAAP in providing research priorities by identifying research topics that should include an epidemiological component and comment on specific epidemiological studies when it is considered advisable. Finally, we will provide an epidemiological perspective to other AAAP committees, upon request for collaboration.

Specific Activities to support the mission:

Promotion of topics and symposiums: Articles on interesting subjects or hot topics. Any authors-in-waiting out there?
Interested in development of a blog for epidemiology related subjects? Put your web-design abilities to work in creation of this site.
Encouraging oral and poster presentations at annual meetings: Work behind-the-scenes or gather support for your projects.
Participating in editing documents relevant to the AAAP: Editorial types, here is your chance! Work with interested folks.
Assist AAAP in providing research priorities by identifying research topics: What are some of your favorites?
Provide an epidemiological perspective to other AAAP committees: If you are a subject-area specialist, please share with us.
