About Precision Medicine
Precision medicine is health care that is based on each individual. It takes into account factors like who you are, where you live, what you do, and your family health history. To make health care better in the future, we need to learn more about the differences that make each of us unique. Precision medicine research may focus on specific health conditions such as heart disease or asthma, or may look for patterns in large groups of people in an effort to better understand what affects people’s health.
