Modern Healthcare Custom Media
Feb 5
11:30 AM

A number of leading health systems are investing in large-scale genetic screening programs, betting on the potential of genomics to improve community health by identifying millions of individuals who are at a higher risk of developing actionable genetic conditions. This webinar will discuss the benefits and challenges of such projects, focusing on lessons learned from the Healthy Nevada Project—an effort being led by Renown Health, in partnership with Helix, to sequence and screen 250,000 Nevadans.

Join Anthony Slonim, MD, DrPH, President and CEO of Renown Health, and James Lu, MD, PhD, Co-founder and Senior Vice President of Applied Genomics at Helix, to:

  • Identify the solutions necessary to overcome challenges in implementing large-scale preventative genetic screening
  • Highlight the impact that health, social & genomic determinants can have on community health
  • Demonstrate the importance of strategic partnerships in achieving success in large-scale genomics screening initiatives.
