Learn how the expansive vision of genomic sciences can be applied to clinical practice with presentations featuring a mix of emerging scientific findings.

Epigenetic Influences on Health

One of the most exciting and previously unsuspected (until the last 25 years) elements of the “omics” revolution is the awareness that environmental signals are often greater determinants of health and disease than genes themselves. Nutrition, physical exercise, stress, toxin exposure, and many other sources can turn off or turn on different genes—pushing our life’s trajectory toward either health or disease. Environmental signals influence the proteins expressed by our genes and, downstream, how those proteins affect our metabolism—our basic biological functioning.

Today, clinicians require an understanding of the chief epigenetic actors in order to educate patients as to why their lifestyle choices and environmental exposures have such a powerful influence on their health.

IFM’s 2015 Annual International Conference Proceedings, The “Omics” Revolution: Nature and Nurture, equips clinicians to integrate this knowledge into clinical practice.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand the role of consumer-generated health genetic data and how it will change clinical practice.
  • Evaluate the role of personalized genomic testing in individual patient care over time.
  • Explain how to use genetic testing to tailor treatments, identify genetic predispositions, or diagnose rare conditions.
  • Recognize how the combination of patient health information in conjunction with longitudinal broad-array proteomics studies can provide the most accurate diagnostic risk indicators, leading to more highly specific predictive and preventive clinical strategies.
  • Discuss the effects of the microbiome and microbial genetics on health.
  • Learn and apply skills for improved patient assessment and compliance around eating patterns.
