Medicine is becoming more and more precise. Healthcare professionals have growing access to big data, computational power and genetic sequencing and testing.

Francis on what’s happening now in precision medicine:

What we are about to launch in the coming months would be an unprecedented program to invite one million Americans to join in an effort to understand what are all of the environmental and genetic factors that play out at the individual level in keeping people healthy. Or if they develop a disease, how best to manage it.
