You've saved the date, September 21 – 23, 2015. Now, it's time to register for Individualizing Medicine Conference 2015: From Promise to Practice.

Hosted by Mayo Clinic's Center for Individualized Medicine and supported by the Satter Foundation, Individualizing Medicine 2015 focuses on how to translate the promise of genomic medicine to your practice, whether you're a family practice doctor in Hibbing, Minn., or a genetic counselor at a major research institution.

No longer in the realm of science fiction, genomic medicine has increasingly entered the mainstream of modern healthcare. It's been called individualized medicine, personalized medicine, and recently by President Barak Obama, precision medicine.  But it all means the same thing.  How do practitioners go from base pairs to bedside, from double helix to healthcare? The 2015 conference offers a practical approach to helping medical professionals discover and integrate genomic medicine into routine patient care.
