Have you ever wondered why some medications don’t always work as well as they should? One of the reasons may be your genetics.
In this webinar, you will learn about how your genes can influence how your body responds to medications. This growing field, called ‘pharmacogenomics’, can help your medical care providers make more informed decisions about how to safely prescribe medications tailored to your specific genetic variations.
- Reasons why medications don’t always work as well as they should
- How your genes can affect the way your body responds to certain medications
- How pharmacogenomics testing can help
- What to ask your healthcare provider about pharmacogenomics testing
