Chronic Disease Epidemiology

The MDHHS Chronic Disease Epidemiology Section is housed within the MDHHS Lifecourse Epidemiology and Genomics Division. The section provides an epidemiologic understanding of prevention, management and control of chronic diseases in Michigan, and supports the surveillance, planning, targeting, and evaluation needs of a variety of departmental programs.

Chronic Disease Epidemiology Section staff members are active in a number of key focus areas (see below) and produce a wide range of surveillance and epidemiologic products.
