Genomic Medicine – How to apply this incredible tool in clinical practice
This session is the first of a six-part series that will break down this enormous topic into portions that any clinician can use to understand and incorporate this vast topic into their practice. The goal of this format is to use each session to build a progressive understanding of the topics involved while having time to process and implement the information.
Date: September 30, 2014, 5:00 – 6:30 pm
In this presentation Dr. Anderson will set the stage and introduce all of the players necessary to understand the inner workings of genomic medicine. This is not the typical “introduction” where common knowledge information is read to you! This presentation is designed to allow the participant to become knowledgeable with the various parts of the system so that they can quickly move to a working knowledge of the topics.
- What is a SNP and how can it affect health?
- What ways to assess related signs and symptoms do we have?
- What testing methods exist and how do I use them?
- What kind of timeline would be reasonable for different presentations?
- Where do I start / or what do I do next clinically?
Paul S. Anderson, ND
Dr. Anderson has spent the past twenty years involved in teaching and research into biochemical physiology as well as that same time period in patient care. Just because “SNP Analysis” is a seemingly new thing do not think that some experienced physicians have not been employing these therapies for quite a long time. The ability to assess the genome is simply a wonderful addition to our understanding of the process! Dr. Anderson will use his extensive teaching, clinical and research background to bring these sessions to clinically relevant life.
