The Intersection of Precision Medicine and Health Equity in Combating COVID-19

Association for Clinical and Translational Science

Featuring: Nishadi Rajapakse, PhD, MHS | Yvonne (Bonnie) Maldonado, MD | Chanita Hughes-Halbert, PhD | Stephanie T. Miller-Hughes, PhD, MS, MSCI | Minoli Perera, PharmD, PhD | David Meltzer, MD | Marcella Nunez-Smith, MD, MHS | Joseph Yracheta, MS

"Precision health holds great potential for revolutionizing health disparities research and interventions through a better understanding of the complex interplay between biological, behavioral, environmental, and social factors that contribute to health inequalities and influence population health. But the goal of achieving equity in precision health will require addressing persistent scientific gaps, confronting structural racism, and addressing social determinants of health and healthcare access. This four-part seminar series will present the state of the science of precision health equity, from societal, scientific, and clinical perspectives, and is designed to inform and inspire primary care providers to translate these innovations into their practices and communities."
