 Rothman has dedicated his career to the development and teaching of the concepts and methods of epidemiologic research and has authored or co-authored more than 250 scholarly publications. Students will recognize him as the author of two widely read epidemiologic textbooks: Modern Epidemiology and Epidemiology, An Introduction. His research spans a wide range of health issues including cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, birth defects, and environmental and pharmaceutical health risks.

Rothman is a professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Boston University School of Public Health and the vice-president for Epidemiology Research at Research Triangle Institute Health Solution. He was the founding editor of Epidemiology, assistant editor of the American Journal of Public Health, editor of the American Journal of Epidemiology, and a member of the editorial board of the New England Journal of Medicine and the international advisory board of The Lancet. He is a past president of the Society for Epidemiologic Research, an honorary fellow of the American College of Epidemiology, and fellow and former member of the board of directors of the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology.

Rothman earned his Dr.P.H. and his M.P.H. degrees from Harvard School of Public Health and his D.D.M. degree from Harvard School of Dental Medicine.

The Saward-Berg lecture is named for Ernest Saward, M.D. and Robert L. Berg, M.D.  A 1939 graduate of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Saward was medical director of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program from 1945 to 1970, and a former faculty member. Berg was the founding chair of the Department of Community and Preventive Medicine who taught and mentored medical students for almost 50 years. Doctoral and post-graduate students in the Department of Community and Preventive Medicine selected Rothman to present the lecture.
