Deborah R. Rosenberg, PhD
Current Research Interests
My professional focus for more than a decade has been split between training state and local health agency staff in applied statistical and epidemiologic methods, and research on topics in perinatal epidemiology and service delivery.
My current work includes: leading an effort to assist the Illinois Department of Public Health in upgrading the surveillance systems relevant to maternal and child health; leading the analysis of Illinois' maternal mortality review data; working with the CDC on an analysis of assisted reproductive technology; conducting several studies using data from the Children with Special Health Care Needs national survey and also data from the Pregnancy Risk Assessment and Monitoring System (PRAMS).
I regularly teach the Introduction to Biostatistics course and the intermediate epidemiologic methods course. In addition, as Co-PI on a project which supports a doctoral program in maternal and child health epidemiology, I teach an advanced class in applied methods using secondary data. I am also core faculty on a national project which offers a continuing education course in maternal and child health epidemiology.
Recently, I have played a major role in reconfiguring the course sequence in epidemiologic methods for the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. I am also a member of the data committee for the UIC Perinatal Center, and in addition, I frequently respond to requests for technical assistance on data-related activities from various local and national groups.
