Engaging Everyone: Leveraging Diversity and Facilitating Equitable Access to Personalized Care
Advancing a medical paradigm that focuses on the unique characteristics of each patient will require, by definition, that patients from diverse backgrounds participate in the medical studies that advance our understanding of disease. Also critical is the need to ensure that those patients have access to personalized care informed by those studies. During this session, four panelists will discuss the effort to ensure that all patient populations benefit equally from personalized medicine.
