In the past decade, genomics, and precision health approaches such as big data science and machine learning have emerged as important tools for public health. Those entering the public health and medical workforces must keep pace with these evolving fields to maximize the benefit to public health. Recognizing this need, ORISE is partnering with the Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to offer a two-day in-person enrichment event covering the latest developments in these fields.

Harnessing big data for health equity through a comprehensive public database and data collection framework.
Cameron Sabet et al. NPJ Digit Med 2023 5 (1) 91

We examine the reasons behind the delayed adoption of big data for healthcare equity, recent efforts embracing big data tools, and methods to maximize potential without overburdening physicians. We additionally propose a public database for anonymized patient data, introducing diverse metrics and equitable data collection strategies, providing valuable insights for policymakers and health systems to better serve communities.
