Question description

Latina and class,


Latina states: Centers of Disease Control and Prevention to forecast an overwhelming increase in obesity rates in the United States by 2030. By researching the epidemiology of obesity, it is found that obesity causes an increase in heart disease, diabetes, and stroke; therefore the epidemiologists in this article are also able to link obesity to the rise of health care costs (The Arizona Republic, 2012).

Class, let's dig deeper! Often time's surveillance is used in epidemiology and public health. 

How do you think the CDC came up with the prediction of a dramatic increase in obesity in 2030? 


What is your definition of surveillance? Please share an example to support your definition??
