Dr. Carolyn Orbann is interested in the ways that cultural behaviors influence the spread of infectious disease in human populations. To do this, she uses a number of methods, including agent-based computer simulation models and historical epidemiology using primary source records. She teaches an honors section of Health Care in the United States (HLTH_SCI 4300H) and has designed two honors tutorials, “Remembering the “Forgotten Pandemic”: Researching the 1918 influenza pandemic in Missouri” and “Life and Death in 20th Century Missouri”.
