Law and policy are essential to ensuring that the promise of genomic and precision medicine is fulfilled across all populations. Existing law and guidelines may be obstacles to access. This conference – the first to focus on the intersection of law, policy, precision medicine and health justice – will bring together leading thinkers, clinicians, scientists, and activists to explore how to ensure the emergence of genomic medicine doesn’t replicate or worsen existing health disparities.
