Testing genes to see how your body responds to and interacts with drugs is a way of personalizing medication — selecting a medication at a dose that is safe and effective. However, currently there are limitations to how the results can be used. Join us to talk through what pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing can and can’t tell us about personalized medicine.

This online program is free and open to Mass General staff, patients, and the general public. No registration needed.
