Dr. Jessica Ancker: "Communicating Risk in the Context of Precision Medicine" Talk

Dr. Jessica Ancker, an associate professor of healthcare policy and research, gave an invited talk on "Communicating Risk in the Context of Precision Medicine: The Challenge of Low Health Literacy" at the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Health Literacy Roundtable event on March 2 in Washington, D.C.

The organization’s Health and Medicine Division (formerly the Institute of Medicine) hosted the event, "Health Literacy and Precision Medicine: An Important Partnership." The division’s primary goal is to help those in government and the private sector make informed health decisions by providing research-based evidence for consideration. The roundtable focused on areas where precision medicine and health literacy intersect, and emphasized the importance of communication in the research and clinical settings, as well as with the public.
