What is Pharmacogenomics (PGx)?

Three providers talk in hospital pharmacy

PGx is the cutting-edge science of how an individual’s genetic background affects their response to medications. PGx has left the realm of research and is rapidly emerging as an important tool for clinical care. Many health systems and clinics across the U.S. are now considering how to bring PGx into routine practice. There is also growing public interest in PGx with the emergence of patient-accessible and direct-to-consumer testing.

Target Audience

Healthcare providers such as pharmacists, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, mental health providers, and program managers interested in learning more about PGx will value the content of this conference.
