Our goal is to prevent and preempt disease and inform our clients so they can stay ahead of diseaseyou might say that it is ‘in our DNA”.

Specific topics we’ll cover include:

  • The recent history of genomics, how we got here, and where we are going
  • The impact of genomic tools and new genetic knowledge on understanding health and disease, and how this is something that changes daily, as new information becomes available
  • Precision medicine and the future of health care

Please join us to learn more about the future of medicine, what Human Longevity does and how we can help you and your family live long and healthy lives by preventing disease and resisting aging.
