Our Mission

The Confounder is a blog dedicated to the community of students, faculty, and staff of the Department of Epidemiology at Rollins School of Public Health.

Our goal is to enhance the student experience by increasing awareness of professional opportunities and sharing insights and career advice related to work as Epidemiologists.
