Session 2 - Unlocking the potential of precision health for diverse populations
SESSION 2
Unlocking the Potential of Precision Health for Diverse Populations
OCTOBER 22, 2020   |   12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET

Precision medicine holds the promise to revolutionize clinical care but only if all populations can share in those benefits. While FH and high lipoprotein(a) impact all races and ethnicities, contemporary studies (including from the FH Foundation’s CASCADE FH longitudinal study) continue to demonstrate unacceptable disparities in care particularly for Black, Asian and Latin populations and for women. Join Dr. Latrice Landry for a provocative discussion about overcoming the challenges of disparities in care.

Session topics:

  • How the lack of diversity in genomic databases is a barrier to translating precision medicine research into practice
  • Challenges of genetic testing in diverse populations
  • Social determinants of health and impact to care
  • How to increase diversity in clinical research
