Dpharm News: The White House Confirms Speaker for Precision Medicine Initiative Update
September 3, 2015
We are pleased to welcome Mina Hsiang, Digital Services Expert for the US Digital Service at the White House to the Dpharm speaking faculty. Ms Hsiang will give the Dpharm audience an update on the Precision Medicine Initiative on September 11th at 3:45.
The mission of the Initiative is to enable a bold new research effort to revolutionize how we improve health and treat disease. The future of precision medicine will enable health care providers to tailor treatment and prevention strategies to people’s unique characteristics, including their genome sequence, microbiome composition, health history, lifestyle, and diet. Many different types of data is needed from metabolomics, the microbiome, and data about the patient collected by health care providers and the patients themselves. Success will require that the health data is portable and that it can be easily shared between providers, researchers, and most importantly, patients and research participants.
Join us at Dpharm to find out the progress on the Initiative and next steps.
