Precision Health in action: making medicine work for you

Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 7 - 8:15 p.m.

The newest frontier in health care is all about precision: diagnoses, treatments and preventive measures tailored towards a patient’s biological and environmental makeup instead of the traditional “one-size-fits all” approach. It could mean learning you have a chronic or rare disease with one simple test or being prescribed a medication that’s more effective and has fewer side effects, all because it was made with your genetics in mind. 

The University of Alberta is home to world-leading experts developing precision-health approaches to diagnosing and treating conditions such as cancer, diabetes and mental illness. On Sept. 28, five researchers and clinicians will discuss how their work is already benefiting the health of patients and communities and what new treatments we can anticipate in the near future.
