Precision Medicine, Implementation Science and Public Health

Good article entitled “Precision Medicine, Implementation Science and Public Health: How Do We Scale Up From 1 Million to 300 Million?” from Muin J Khoury, Director, Office of Public Health Genomics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI), is a bold new research effort to revolutionize how we improve health and treat disease. Precision medicine is about empowering both patients and health care providers with the information and tools they need to tailor treatment and prevention strategies to patients' unique characteristics. The vision of precision medicine is to have our genome sequence available for use in disease prevention and health care, we have a unique opportunity through this initiative not only to make new discoveries but to learn how to implement and scale up this endeavor from where we are now to a million person cohort, and ultimately 300 million people.
