49th Union World Conference on Lung Health
The Union World Conference on Lung Health is the world’s largest gathering of clinicians and public health workers, health programme managers, policymakers, researchers and advocates working to end the suffering caused by lung disease, with a focus specifically on the challenges faced by low-and lower-middle income populations. Of the 10 million people who die each year from lung diseases, some 80 percent live in these resource-limited settings.
MetaSystems will exhibit at booth #37.
The theme of the meeting this year will be, "Precision Medicine Begins Here”. The Precision Medicine Initiative of the National Institutes of Health defines precision medicine as "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." For an increasing number of diseases across a wide variety of medical specialties, the one-size-fits-all approach to patient diagnosis and treatment is becoming obsolete. Molecular professionals lead the way in developing and applying new technologies to achieve the best patient care and outcome in this rapidly evolving field. We also play a vital role in educating our clinical colleagues, lay public, and elected officials of the value of the critical work that we do.
