PRECISION MEDICINE IN PRACTICE: WORKSHOP, LIVE EVENT (Limited Seats Available) (Limited Space Avail. -- Thursday, October 25, 2018 | 10am-4:30pm EST -- LIVE EVENT, Not a Webinar -- Must attend in-person) --
This hands-on interactive workshop teaches foundational concepts of clinical genomics and practical skills for implementing genetic diagnostic/predisposition testing for common diseases in medical practice. It is intended for health care professionals with little to no experience with genetic testing, who are interested in bringing precision medicine to their patients. The format includes lecture, group exercises and clinical case reviews. We’ll explore popular genetic tests for hereditary cancers and cardiovascular disease and learn how to choose the right test, select a testing lab, interpret lab reports and communicate with patients. In addition, we’ll review online tools and databases, and offer resources for learning about the genetic basis of diseases. You’ll walk away with the confidence to begin offering precision medicine in your clinical practice.
