Personalized Medicine

Hype, hope, genuine progress

This year’s forum brings together four knowledgeable and dynamic speakers who are on the cutting edge of this new approach in Medicine. Each has a significant involvement with treatments and research that informs this new chapter in personal health care.
Join the Lafayette Quartet and the community at large as we learn just what Personalized Medicine is and how it can affect us individually and as a society.
