Karin Yeatts




Air pollution, climate change-related health effects, and respiratory disease have been the three major themes of Karin's research. As one of few faculty members in the UNC Department of Epidemiology who focus on respiratory disease and air pollution, she has led multiple large interdisciplinary teams to investigate research questions related to those topics.

Her teaching philosophy is based upon the principle of active learning. She applies state-of-the-art pedagogical concepts such as case-based modules and “flipping the classroom” to her courses.

She has served on 18 graduate student committees across three departments (including one master’s and six doctoral students in Epidemiology) and has mentored several independent student research projects in ESE and Epidemiology.

Often called “the cornerstone” of public health, epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of diseases, health conditions, or events among populations and the application of that study to control health problems. By applying the concepts learned in this course to current public health problems and issues, students will understand the practice of epidemiology as it relates to real life and makes for a better appreciation of public health programs and policies. This course explores public health issues like cardiovascular and infectious diseases – both locally and globally – through the lens of epidemiology.
