This event follows the highly successful 1st Personalized Medicine Summit 2015, which resulted in a consensus advisory document, the “Roadmap for Bringing Personalized Medicine to British Columbians”. Summit 2017 will produce an updated Roadmap to assist government, the public and healthcare providers with the implementation of personalized, precision medicine, which will result in more efficient and effective healthcare.

Summit 2017 will attract an internationally renowned faculty and will be of interest to clinicians, patient advocates, healthcare providers, academics and representatives from government and industry who are interested in the revolution in healthcare that is being enabled by personalized, molecularly-based medicine.
