LeeAnne Brown Grand Rounds in Genetics


-Scroll down for video recordings-

About the Conference: Advances have been made in understanding the human genome's contribution to health and disease, but there are strengths and limitations in the findings.

Distinguished professors and physicians in the field of human genetics, genomic medicine, molecular biology and basic sciences will present lectures in genetics with an emphasis on patient care and personalized medicine. These interprofessional presentations will offer the opportunity to review such findings and in so doing update and improve patient diagnoses and care services.

Target Audience: Family and Internal Medicine Physicians, OB/GYN Physicians, Pediatricians, Psychiatrists, Surgeons, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Basic Science faculty, staff and students, Advanced Practice Nurses, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Psychologists, Nurses, Medical and Nursing Students.
