Part I: Individual Risk Assessment Acute Infectious Disease Risk Assessment: Take the CDC’s Viral Hepatitis Risk Assessment. Hepatitis A, B, C
Chronic Heart Disease Risk Assessment: Take the Framingham Heart Study test for Cardiovascular Disease (30-year risk); (calculator), and/or the Mayo Clinic Heart Disease Risk; (calculator)
In general terms, what are some of the risk factors identified from your research assessment? What other types of risk factors are a concern to public and environmental health that may be identified through a risk assessment?
PART II: Public Health Risk Assessment: The health risk assessment is typically described as consisting of four basic steps: 1) hazard identification, 2) exposure assessment, 3) dose-response assessment, and 4) risk characterization. Explain these steps.
