“The Impact of Race and Spatial Deprivation on the Incidence and Clinical Outcomes of Hospitalized Patients with Community-Acquired Pneumonia”
Timothy L Wiemken, PhD, MPH, CIC, FAPIC 
Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology & Population Health
UofL School of Public Health and Information Sciences

Lower respiratory tract infections, including community acquired pneumonia are the leading cause of infectious diseases related deaths worldwide. Although health disparities have been documented for a wide variety of conditions and outcomes, there is a paucity of data in the field of pneumonia. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of race and socio-economic factors on the incidence, epidemiology, and clinical outcomes of hospitalized patients with community acquired pneumonia using data from a two-year population-based study in Louisville, KY.

“Social Epidemiology: Exploring the Social and Structural Predicates of Global Population Health.”
Anne Wallis, PhD, MHS
Assistant Professor, Department of Epidemiology & Population Health

Can a more thorough understanding of social variables, improved theory about the relationships between and among social variables and health outcomes, and more sophisticated analytical models better inform not only our understanding of causal linkages, but help support a new population-based public health?
