Impact of Epidemiology The field of epidemiology is closely  related to health psychology. Epidemiology is the study of the  frequency, distribution, and causes of  infectious and noninfectious disease in  a population, based on an investigation  of the physical and social environment.  Two frequently used terms are morbidity  and mortality.
