OK what is that? Besides being a Dr I mean? Beale.
It's the study of frequency and distribution of diseases or health risks in the population. We look at incidence of disease occurrence and prevalence and correlate it to different population and environmental characteristics.

I do have a medical degree but also a research degree (masters) in epidemiology. I work as a doctor now, but when I originally signed up here I was doing research in epidemiology at a university. :smile:

I may have already posted in this thread but couldn't find it so....

robby is from my last name, a nickname I've had from my days in the military, 4570 is because I have an antique 1881 Trapdoor Springfield Rifle in 45-70 and a replica 1874 Sharps, also in 45-70. It's a screen name I've used on every forum I've ever been a member of.

Got my nick name over 40 years ago when i had my first biz cards made,,the printer thought i wrote down DOC when my nick name was DOG so when the cards were done they said DOC instead of DOG,,so when he made up a new batch,,he screwed them up again and they said DOC DOG,,but now i had 2000 biz cards ether saying DOC or DOC DOG,,back in them days it would take about 2 or 3 weeks to do biz cards,so i just used the cards i had until they had the new batch ready,,,and when they came back the third time,,they said DOO DOG so those i through in the trash,,,ill be damn if i was going to hand out cards sayin doo dog on em (they smoked far to much weed )so any way by the time i passed out the first 2000 cards,,the name DOC DOG was firmly established ,,strange but true,,,so there ya have it ,,i got my nick name from a pot smokin printer :cool:
