Precision medicine and precision public health is a multi-dimensional approach that takes advantage of the many individualized advances of the past few decades and synthesizes a new paradigm, a new model that will be the driving research link to clinical excellence, that more rapidly improves healthcare quality and value. At its core, Precision Health is the intersection between persons, their environment and the changes in their markers of health and illness, social and behavioral factors over time.
Fred Meyers is the Associate Dean for Precision Medicine at UC Davis. His passion as a physician in caring for cancer patients, for educating and mentoring scholars and new physicians, and convening diverse groups – from Chair of Internal Medicine to the Vice Dean of the School of Medicine — has led to his current focus on Precision Medicine.
