Neighborhood Health Series – The Stories Your DNA Tells About You: From Your Ancestry to How You Might Respond to a Medication
Presented by David Rawlins, PhD. As the general public has shown increased interest in ancestry, companies have responded with at-home ancestry kits, software and databases.
As the general public has shown increased interest in ancestry, companies have responded with at-home ancestry kits, software and databases. At the same time, scientists continue to work in the area of genetics looking at a person’s genetic markers and how these markers provide clues to a patient’s likelihood of getting particular diseases (including COVID-19), or how they might respond to different drug therapies. How can all of this data help you as a patient? Meet Dr. David Rawlins, former pharmaceutical drug researcher and faculty in Roseman’s College of Pharmacy. Dr. Rawlins will bring a lifetime of experience in research to our guests and shed light on how our DNA offers insights to our health outcomes.
