Infectious Disease Epidemiology Program
(800) 256-2748

The Infectious Disease Epidemiology section is staffed by thirty epidemiologists and support staff who act as disease detectives to track the causes and consequences of infectious diseases.  The purpose of this section is to study the distribution of infectious diseases in the community and to carry out or coordinate programs that prevent the spread of communicable diseases.

The Infectious Disease Epidemiology Program is funded through cooperative agreements with the State of Louisiana and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The program is also involved in several collaborative efforts with Louisiana State University Veterinary School and Tulane University School of Public Health.
