Epidemiology

WHAT DOES THE EPIDEMIOLOGIST DO?

Our Epidemiologist works with partners and applies epidemiological principles to infectious diseases affecting the citizens in healthcare settings and the community, with the mission of improving patient-level outcomes and protecting the population.

In collaboration with the Virginia Department of Health’s Division of Surveillance and Investigation (DSI), we provide surveillance, investigation, and follow up of communicable diseases that are reportable by medical providers and laboratories.

This includes:

  • Community outreach, education, and in-services trainings
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) treatment, counseling and referral
  • Childhood and adult immunizations, counseling and referral
