Note: The final events chart for 2018-2019 originally showed "Environmental Quality" underneath DD but it was soon deleted. Does this mean that the event will focus on epidemiology as a whole (not just EQ), or is that just a mistake on the Event Committee's behalf? Here's the link to the events chart:

Sorry for the questions ... DD newbie here XD

I'm not sure either, but I just want to assure you that DD tests usually don't focus on the topic anyway.

It says on the VA state website that the focus is Environmental Quality for 2018-2019. They don't really ask many questions on environmental quality (and population growth) though, only foodborne diseases

I’m kinda late to this but from the tests I’ve taken from the last time EQ was the focus, all I have to say is that the event itself with still be on epidemiology. Some invitationals, regionals, or even state tests this year may have had random trivia questions regarding food borne illnesses which don’t really follow the rules and that is probably what you’re worried about when asking about studying for EQ. In general on the tests, EQ is just that the diseases and conditions that are analyzed in the case studies are caused by environmental factors rather than food borne pathogens. Case studies will be on conditions such as lead poisoning or asthma to name a few I can remember at the top of my head from various nationals tests, but ultimately, it is just epidemiology
