Health@Google: "The Genetic Revolution and Predictive Medicine" with Dr. Brandon Colby

We stand at the forefront of the Genetic Revolution, which now allows us to personalize products and services to our genes. While the Information Age created unprecedented instantaneous worldwide access to our civilization's information, the Genetic Revolution provides a way for us to personalize that information to each individual. Because of this, information is able to evolve from being generalized to being all about one single person: YOU.

Brandon Colby, MD, is a world leader in the fields of genetic testing and predictive medicine. Dr. Colby will discuss the current and near-future technologies that are fueling the genetic revolution as well as the difference between genetic testing and genetic analysis. Specific focus will be applied to how genetic information is now being used by healthcare professionals to predict and prevent a large number of diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and even Alzheimer's. The talk will also include specific ways in-which you and your family can use the information contained within your genes to protect your health and wellness not in ten or five years, but today.
