As the first of Indiana University's Grand Challenges, Precision Health is IU's big health care solution. The Precision Health Initiative incorporates medicine, social sciences, education and data sciences to find ways to better identify, treat, cure and prevent diseases. Success of the initiative will be measured by the tangible impact it has on the lives of people living in Indiana.
We were joined by leaders of Indiana University and its Precision Health Initiative to learn about progress made so far toward the initiative's bold goals to cure at least one cancer and one childhood disease and to prevent at least one chronic illness and one neurodegenerative disease. Leaders also discussed plans to go door to door in the community to invite Indiana residents' participation in precision health research.
