Have you been hearing recently about precision or personalized medicine to describe healthcare that uses information about our genes, proteins and environment to prevent, diagnose and treat disease?

Personalized Medicine: Our Future or Big Data Voodoo?
July 19, 7:00-8:30 pm
Kansas City Public Library Plaza Branch
4801 Main Street, Kansas City, MO

* Lecture will be livestreamed on the Center's Facebook Page.

Former President Obama said that personalized medicine promises to deliver “the right treatments at the right time, every time, to the right person.” In cancer, personalized medicine uses specific information about a person’s tumor to help diagnose, treat and measure success.

Please join us on July 19 for a lecture and conversation with Kumar Ethirajan, MD. An oncologist specializing in cancer genetics in the Kansas City area since 1993, Dr. Ethirajan will explain the basics about genes and personalization in healthcare and raise tough questions: Who owns your genetic information? For you or the greater good?
