PERSONALIZED MEDICINE OFFERS NEW HOPE TO CANCER PATIENTS

The Association of Yale Alumni in Medicine and the Yale Club of San Francisco invite you to join Thomas J.

Personalized medicine uses the genetic profile of a patient’s tumor to improve diagnosis and inform more specific targeted therapies whenever possible.
