Epidemiology is the study of the determinants of health, the science of analyzing health states within a population. The root word is "epidemic" and not "epidermis", which means that Epidemiology has nothing to do with skin. (That is, unless one happens to be a dermatological epidemiologist; but that's another story.)

Raywat Deonandan holds a Ph.D. in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada, as well as three other advanced science degrees from the University of Toronto.

Deonandan has worked in the USA and Canada and has consulted on projects based in Guyana, India, Trinidad, Rwanda, India, Sri Lanka, and elswhere. While his doctoral thesis focused on issues relating to in vitro fertilization and other reproductive technologies, Deonandan's fields of expertise have indluded HIV/AIDS, COVID-19, health services research, musculoskeletal disease, neurological disease, mental health, medical education, biotechnology and diabetes.

He is the author of the Amazon #1 bestseller in its category, Nothing To Do With Skin: The Fundamentals of Epidemiology & Population Health Research
