The 14th Annual Texas Conference on Health Disparities: Social Epigenomics & Health Disparities
The 14th Annual Texas Conference on Health Disparities was held on Thursday, June 6 - Friday, June 7, 2019 at the UNT Health Science Center.
The Texas Conference on Health Disparities 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.
