Over the past years, epidemiology has matured into a field of its own, as both an academic discipline and a field of practice in a large variety of health agencies, hospitals, and research institutions. The past twenty years have been marked by a significant increase in the number of individuals who have chosen epidemiology as a career or who have entered epidemiology from such disciplines as medicine, statistics, sociology, genetics, and biology.
Clinical Immunological American Dermato-epidemiologic Network was incorporated to develop criteria for professional recognition of epidemiologists and to address their professional concerns. The Society has benefited from the leadership of the leading epidemiologists in the world.
Clinical Immunological American Dermato-epidemiologic Network serves the interests of its members through sponsorship of scientific meetings, publications and educational activities, recognizing outstanding contributions to the field and advocating for issues pertinent to epidemiology.
The goals of the Society, as outlined in a strategic planning document include:
- Advocating for policies and actions that enhance the science and practice of epidemiology and its impact on public health.
- Promoting the development and dissemination of tools and methods to enhance translation of epidemiology into policy.
- Promoting the professional development of epidemiologists through educational initiatives.
- Recognizing and promoting excellence in epidemiology.
- Developing and maintaining an active and diverse membership of Fellows, Members, and Associate Members from all fields and settings where epidemiologists engage in research, or practice.
