The Lourie Center is offering the pilot course in its new Lifelong Learning Program of the Midlands, a community education program for adults 50 years of age and older.
This initial course “Personalized Medicine: What, Why, How?” will explore medicine and our genetic make-up. The goal of personalized medicine is to improve the health of people by using their genetic make-up to assist physicians in making recommendations for their treatment and diet. Personalized medicine is the medicine of the future and is expected to not only improve our well-being but also to reduce our costs of maintaining good health.
Instructor Dr. Sondra Berger, retired USC Professor and board member at the Lourie Center, will cover three key components:
· What is personalized medicine and how does it differ from the traditional practices of medicine?
· Why is personalized medicine positioned to make an important contribution to the future health of all people?
· How are the goals of personalized medicine achieved?
Classes meet Thursdays, April 5- April 26, 1pm-1:50 pm at the Lourie Center.
