Epidemiology

Florida Department of Health in Seminole County

Epidemiology is a core public health function. Physicians and other healthcare professionals are required by Florida Statute to report any disease of public health significance to the Florida Department of Health. Typically this is done through a county health department’s epidemiology program.

Our epidemiology program monitors diseases other than tuberculosis (TB), sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and HIV/AIDS. Our staff investigates disease outbreaks in order to identify the source, intervene to protect others who may be at risk, and identify ways to prevent additional cases. Our staff also provides disease control education and consultation for the public, physicians, veterinarians, hospitals, schools, daycares, nursing homes, animal services, and other institutions in the community.
