Opportunity Cover Image - Public Health Seminar - Truths, Half-truths, and Possible Mischief-making in Psychiatric Epidemiology, AUA

This seminar aims to challenge public health professionals and epidemiologists to think more clearly and to be more articulate about epidemiologic discoveries, and what they must do to adapt previously observational research to the availability of evidence-based interventions.

James C. Anthony, MSc, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, College of Human Medicine, Michigan State University; Adjunct Professor, Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health; Profesor Honorario, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia

James C. (Jim) Anthony, Ph.D. earned his M.Sc. (1975) and Ph.D. (1977) from the University of Minnesota Graduate School in a degree program that combined pharmacy sciences and epidemiology. In 1977-78, an NIMH postdoctoral research fellowship award allowed him to study biostatistics, psychiatric epidemiology, and psychopathology at Johns Hopkins University Schools of Hygiene & Public Health and Medicine. In 2003 he transferred his primary academic appointments, research, and research training programs to Michigan State University, where he serves as tenured
professor of epidemiology & biostatistics in the MSU College of Human Medicine. He also served as chairman of the medical school’s Department of Epidemiology from October 2003 through December 2008. His research accomplishments appear in more than 300 published articles and books, and have been recognized in awards and honors, including designation as a “highly influential” contributor to the research literature of “psychology/psychiatry” and “general social sciences,” based on epidemiological studies of neuropsychiatric and other behavioral disturbances.

He has been elected to serve as President of the Alpha Chapter of the Delta Omega Society, the premier public health honors society in the world, as chairman of the Section of Epidemiology and Public Health of the World Psychiatric Association, and as a member of the Board of Directors for the College on Problems of Drug Dependence. His most recent award is election to the Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars in February 2014. The Society of Scholars recognizes former Johns Hopkins postdoctoral fellows who have “gained marked distinction in their fields of physical, biological, medical, social or engineering sciences.”
