The interdisciplinary educational series, which takes place monthly during the academic year, features topics ranging from genetics to big data to health implementation (and much more).

The goal is to increase understanding of precision health data, tools and applications, to engage the academic community to enhance precision health research, and to support the implementation of precision health to health systems.
