You are cordially invited to join us on November 4, 2016 for the next in our series of Cracking the Code on Healthcare events. This event will focus on the topic “A Data Driven Approach to Healthcare Transformation”. The event will be held at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, New York.

Far too many diseases do not have a proven means of prevention or effective treatments. Precision Medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. The Precision Medicine Initiative® will generate the scientific evidence needed to move the concept into clinical practice.

The event will focus on Healthcare Transformation and the impacts of Precision Medicine, its data gathering and infrastructure requirements and bringing these new, personalized therapies to the patient. It will include key note presentations by these esteemed national thought leaders:
