The United States Center for Disease Conrol describes epidemiology as "the study of the origin and causes of diseases in a community. It is the scientific method of investigation problem-solving used by disease detectives—epidemiologists, laboratory scientists, statisticians, physicians and other health care providers, and public health professionals—to get to the root of health problems and outbreaks in a community."
