Additional information about the event:
As the racial and ethnic makeup of the population becomes increasingly diverse it is likewise shifting the healthcare landscape. Rapid changes in health care delivery – how care is accessed and how diverse populations understand their individual health in the context of these shifts – is forcing businesses & providers to rethink how they engage with these diverse communities. Personalized Medicine, emphasizes the ways in which a person’s disease risks are unique and different.
