Roger H. Bernier, PhD, MPH, Editor and Publisher
Roger Bernier graduated from Assumption College in Worcester,
Massachusetts in 1966. In that year, he embarked on the first
phase of a 40 year public health career with the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, GA. Roger entered
graduate school at Yale in 1972 and earned an MPH in epidemiology
in 1974. He immediately went on to the Johns Hopkins School of
Hygiene and Public Health and earned a PhD in epidemiology in
1978. He then returned to the CDC for the second phase of his
career in the National Immunization Program where he retired in
2010. Dr. Bernier launched The Epidemiology Monitor in 1980 after
finding it difficult as a graduate student to get vital
information about developments in epidemiology at other schools
and in the field in general.
