Course Description

How do you deliver on the promise of a truly personalized approach? Our patients are drawn into programs that promise personalized medicine or actually deliver care plans that are segmented into a few groups - not catered to me individually Yet it can feel overwhelming to include the depth of personalization that we want and that we know is now available using advanced testing including all of the omics, from genomics to metabolomics. This talk will discuss ways to collaborate, taking advantage of technology and the expertise of fellow integrative medicine professionals, and providing case-based examples and data on the power of collaboration and true personalization of care.
