Precision Genomic Medicine Conference

2nd Annual Precision Genomic Medicine Conference 2019

Precision Genomic Medicine utilizes an individual’s genome profile as a tool in managing patient health care. This rapidly growing field holds great promise in evolving medicine toward tailored treatments through integrative medicine, science, and technology, but it requires an underlying broad knowledge base by both the health care provider and the patient.

This educational event will provide health care professionals an introduction to the current areas of study, cases where Precision Genomic Medicine (PGM) is already employed in clinical practice, appraise what PGM can - and cannot - do, and possible benefits and challenges surrounding its implementation in standard practice. With the knowledge base gained from this conference, the health care provider should be able to decide if genomic information should be considered in their patient’s treatment.
