Individualized medicine, genomics, and associated technologies that drive patient care are rapidly advancing, outpacing the education available. Individualized medicine, focusing on what makes each of us unique, is becoming an important consideration in patient care.  The Genes & Your Health podcast miniseries aims to distill what is being learned related to genomics into practical content the primary care provider and health care teams can use in patient care.
