Seven Ways to Expand Diversity in Precision Medicine ResearchFebruary 3, 2020 |
by Sara Berg
Ethnic and racial minority populations in the U.S. have a long history of being mistreated by the health care system, researchers and the government. The resulting mistrust can pose a challenge for researchers seeking to understand the biology of complex traits, as well as for physicians interested in delivering personalized care to diverse patients. Diversity in precision medicine research is crucial for understanding genetic differences that shape so many health outcomes and potential treatments.
Learn what physicians and health systems can do to advance precision medicine research and build rapport and trust to increase minority participation in critical research.
