Child Health and Wellness – A Precision Health Approach
November 6, 2019
8:15 AM

Alberta/Gairdner International Symposium

Precision Health attempts to understand individuals and populations at a level that goes beyond a one-size-fits-all approach, using all available data – clinical, biological, environmental – in an integrated manner. This approach to healthcare and research is transforming how we understand, diagnose and treat immune-mediated disorders, cancers, and rare diseases, to name a few. Precision Health holds the greatest promise for our children – improving the health trajectories of children improves their future.

Celebrate the accomplishments of those who are paving the way for a Precision Health approach to Child Health and Wellness at the prestigious 2019 Gairdner International Symposium, hosted by the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute.
