Dr. Nam-Han Cho. I am an associate professor of preventive medicine and clinical epidemiologist. Upon my graduation from University of Pittsburgh in 1989, I have been working on gestational diabetes research to identify the risk factors and possibly to prevent the disease. My research is funded from Korean government and we are following approximately 1000 subjects who experienced gestational diabetes during pregnancy.
A number of epidemiologic studies are available and have been used for diabetes researches. In this lecture, I will discuss the type of epidemiologic studies that have been used in diabetes research and point out the pros and cons for each study.
