EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Webinar (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  Precision Medicine and Health Disparities: The Promise and Perils of Emerging Technologies
 
Description:  Co-Sponsored by the Precision Medicine and Population Health Interest Group in NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, the NIH Genomics and Health Disparities Interest Group, and CDC Office of Public Health Genomics

Advances in genome sequencing and other “omic” technologies and big data promises a new era of personalized medicine and public health. However, it is not entirely clear whether new technologies can be used to understand and address existing population health disparities. The Precision Medicine and Population Health Interest Group in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the NIH Genomics and Health Disparities Interest Group, and the CDC Office of Public Health Genomics invite you to a special 1-hour online webinar that explores the intersection among genomics, precision medicine and health disparities. Our two speakers will explore the appropriate role and impact of genomics and tools of precision medicine in understanding and addressing health disparities in the US and around the world. After the two 20-minute presentations, another 20 minutes will be devoted to a dialogue and Questions and Answers from both the live audience and online attendees.
