2300 - Healthcare Personalized for You: Understanding Genomics and Precision Medicine
Precision medicine is healthcare tailored to individuals based on their family health history and genes (DNA), their environments, and their lifestyles. This course will help each person understand (1) the contribution of their genes (DNA) to health and disease, (2) information about what genetic/genomic testing is currently available and appropriate for participants and/or their family members, and (3) how to learn what medicines are best for different individuals. Participants will gain insights into health, wellness and treatments based on available genetic technologies and tests. They will also be taught how to draw a three-generation family health history and how to analyze it for risks and/or disease. This course may be informative for learners who have had genetic/genomic testing or ancestry testing, however, neither is a prerequisite. Lecture (plus questions). Facilitated Discussion.
