This webinar will describe the emerging frontier of "precision medicine" — a new approach to disease treatment and prevention that considers our individual differences in lifestyle, environment and biological makeup. We will discuss how this approach can improve the understanding and treatment of mental illness. The webinar will also introduce the All of Us Research Program and opportunities to participate in this unique and potentially transformative effort to advance the future of medicine.
