Reproductive and Perinatal Epidemiology: Course Description

Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health's Ronald Gray is a professor in the field of population and family planning. His class, 'Reproductive and Perinatal Epidemiology', studies diseases and malfunctions of population and reproductive health and family planning. The main theme is a study of infertility, conception, contraception, reproductive diseases, pregnancy complications, birth defects and maternal mortality. Surrounding that theme, the lectures focus on how these affect the biological, social and behavioral interactions of groups. Gray also focuses on how these complications are handled in third-world countries versus developed countries and how those countries treat the resulting conditions. Unfortunately, the original course format of lecture and in-class group discussion doesn't translate easily to the OpenCourseWare format.

The OpenCourseWare materials provided include lecture notes, links to online reading materials and discussion questions. If you are interested in learning more, visit the course page.
