Extending an Antiracism Lens to the Implementation of Precision Public Health Interventions.
Caitlin G Allen et al. Am J Public Health 2023 8 e1-e9
From the abstract: Growing concerns underscore the potential for precision-based approaches to exacerbate health disparities by relying on biased data inputs and recapitulating existing access inequities. To achieve its full potential, precision public health must focus on addressing social and structural drivers of health and prominently incorporate equity-related concerns, particularly with respect to race and ethnicity. In this article, we discuss how an antiracism lens could be applied to reduce health disparities and health inequities through equity-informed research, implementation, and evaluation of precision public health interventions."
Transdisciplinary Conference for Future Leaders in Precision Public Health, November 9, 2023

Advances in genomics, data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are transforming practice. Next generation public health and medical workforces need to understand these developments and how they can be used to benefit population health. Recognizing this challenge, Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is partnering with the Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to offer a free 2-day in-person training event covering the latest developments in these fields: Current Issues in Genomics and Precision Public Health – Using Genomics and Big Data to Improve Population Health and Reduce Health Inequities.
Genomics and Precision Public Health Issues Enrichment Event
Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education Enrichment Event, Atlanta, Georgia, September 7-8, 2023
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.
