Getting Into Your Genes: Why Genetics Matters to Your Patients
Session 1 of the Genetics and Genomics Bundle
Date: Thursday, March 3, 7 – 8:30 p.m. ET
This webinar provides an overview of the NIH’s All of Us Research Program and its resources, as well as a genetics update for PAs and an examination of the value of genetics in medicine and in addressing health disparities. In addition, it features a panel discussion and Q&A with representatives from All of Us community partners, including insights on their constituents’ experience with the program and more.
All of Us is a longitudinal effort to gather health data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. The program is partnering with participants to build a diverse database that will help researchers better understand how genetics, environmental factors, and life circumstances affect health outcomes.
The Genetics and Genomics Bundle is a collaboration between AAPA, the African Heritage PA Caucus, the LBGT PA Caucus, PAs for Latino Health, and the Society of PAs in Genetics and Genomics.
