Communications Committee

About the Committee

This committee is responsible for identifying, investigating, and implementing communications vehicles to meet evolving member needs and promoting a better understanding of the profession of epidemiology to other health professions and the public.

The Communications Committee consists of five Fellows or Members, and at least one of these is a member of the Board of Directors. Fellows and Members of the committee are appointed by the President for three-year terms. Representation on the committee includes individuals from academia, industry, and federal and state government to ensure the fullest representation of practicing epidemiologists. The committee also serves as a liaison between the Board of Directors and Members/Fellows to ensure a timely and mutual exchange of information on matters pertaining to the practice of epidemiology.

The purpose of the newsletter is to 1) disseminate ACE information of the workings of the college; 2) highlight professional achievements of members; 3) identify epidemiological and public health issues of note; and 4) provide a calendar of ACE events.
