PRECISION MEDICINE: ONE SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL

There are 7.4 billion people in the world and each one is unique. To account for that uniqueness, heath care is moving towards precision medicine: an approach that takes into consideration each individual’s environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors. Similar to the way blood typing reduces the risk of complications in blood transfusions, precision medicine holds the potential for more effective disease prevention and treatment. Join us as we discuss the emerging field of precision medicine and what it could mean for the future of health care.
