Day One: Thursday, March 8

Seats surround a central stage in the Innovation CoRE Theater inside the Guidewell Innovation CenterThe conference begins with an inspiring sweep of the current state and future potential of precision medicine through TED Talk-style keynote presentations. Interactive Q&A sessions will follow each presentation.

Day one of the conference will be held in the Innovation CoRE Theater, located in the Guidewell Innovation Center, a 9,000-square-foot facility with state-of-the-art resources.

The first day wraps up with an elegant reception in the Guidewell Innovation Center. Refreshments will be provided.


Welcome and Keynote Presentation

12:30 – 1:15 p.m. Learn about the latest developments and cutting edge trends in clinical implementation of genetics and pharmacogenetics from an internationally renowned expert during this dynamic, interactive presentation. Julie Johnson, Pharm.D.
University of Florida

 


Precision Medicine in Practice & Genetic Gems

1:15 – 2:15 p.m. Recognized professionals in genetics and pharmacogenetics will unwrap their clinical practice and implementation experiences, with a focus on lessons learned and best practices. Individual presentations will be followed by an interactive panel discussion. Howard McLeod, Pharm.D.
Moffitt Cancer Center

Kiran Musunuru, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H.
University of Pennsylvania

Peter O’Donnell, M.D.
University of Chicago

2:15 – 3:00 p.m. Speakers will present representative complex genetic or pharmacogenetic patient case scenarios that they have encountered in practice for panel-based discussion. These real-world scenarios will include dialogue and debate about genetics-informed clinical decision making and practical issues encountered with clinical implementation, such as reimbursement/billing, patient education, return and documentation of test results, liability concerns, and more. Attendees will be able to actively participate in these scenarios to ensure that they are able to apply newly acquired skills upon their return to practice.
