Precision Medicine/Weight-Loss Surgery/Google: Mayo Clinic Radio

April 27, 2015

Precision medicine ... also called individualized medicine ... got special attention recently when President Obama announced a Precision Medicine Initiative and called for the creation of a national biobank. On this week's program, Dr. Keith Stewart, director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, discusses the biobank and what it might mean for the future of health care. Also on the program, Mayo Clinic psychologist Dr. Karen Grothe explains the importance of a psychological evaluation when planning weight-loss surgery. And preventive medicine specialist Dr. Phil Hagen talks about how Mayo Clinic and Google have teamed up to increase the odds of finding realiable health information on the Web.

Here's the podcast: MCR PODCAST April 25 2015

Hi, Mercedes, thank you for your question and interest in this initiative. After speaking with both Drs. Theel and Wilson, the project is not quite ready to expand to other Mayo staff at the moment; however, we do expect the project to grow and to recruit additional interested Mayo staff in the near future. Thank you.
