The 13th Annual Texas Conference on Health Disparities: Diversity in the Era of Precision Medicine
The 13th Annual Texas Conference on Health Disparities was held Thursday, June 7 - Friday, June 8, 2018 at the UNT Health Science Center.
The Texas Health Disparities Conference focuses on precision medicine, an emerging approach where healthcare and treatment is personalized based on the clinical history, environment, lifestyle, socio-demographic characteristics, and genetic risks. However, racial/ethnic minority populations, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations and rural populations continue to share the burden of adverse health conditions. Therefore, action must be taken to ensure that health benefits from precision-based care are realized for every individual.
