||This is the
second of 10 lectures on toxicologic epidemiology. It has been prepared to discuss in
greater depth the link between public health (PH) and health risk assessment (RA). As
discussed in the first lecture, PH and RA are theoretically at the apex of the hierarchy
that navigates much of the advances in (at least some sectors of) modern epidemiology and
in (some sectors of) modern toxicology, and hence much of the new advances in toxicologic
epidemiology as well.
