VIENNA, VA USA -- PHARMA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- JULY 19, 2019: Pharmacogenomics considers the role of the genome in drug response. It combines pharmacology and genomics, considering how the genetic makeup of an individual affects his/her response to drugs.

Today, more than ever before, we have the ability to target the right drug to improve a patient's quality of life while also eliminating waste from non-optimized medications. This webinar provides an overview of pharmacogenomics and will showcase an employer case example of the opportunities and savings available to employers and health plans through integration of personalized medicine into benefits plan designs.
