Personalizing Health with Genetic Insights: Cancer, Heart Disease, Medications and More
March 26, 2019 | 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm
Speaker: Kornelius Bankston |Director of Business Development, Color Genomics
Our genetics significantly impact our health, and yet are overlooked in many employer health benefits, making it difficult for employees, their families, and their doctors to fully understand and manage costly health risks.
This session will cover why it is imperative for employers to be understanding of the role genetics play in employee health, studies that quantify the human and financial benefit of genetic information, and how leading employers have launched with Color and the results and response they’ve experienced.
In this session you will:
- Learn the impact genetics has on our risk for cancer and heart disease, and how we process commonly prescribed medications
- Gain insight on the human and financial benefit of personalizing health with genetic information
- Discuss why SAP launched Color, the impact it had on their organization, and their decision to further expand the program across health areas and geographies
