Engaging for a Better Future

Precision medicine will impact the lives of Americans in the near future. We all need to understand and engage in discussions related to genomics and the microbiome, and how both play a critical role in our lives. Not everyone needs to be a scientist, but we all need to be well-informed to make health decisions.
