Dishman To Give Leiter Lecture
Eric Dishman, director of the All of Us Research Program at NIH, will deliver the 2018 Joseph Leiter National Library of Medicine/Medical Library Association Lecture, Wednesday, May 9. It will take place at 1:30 p.m. in Lister Hill Auditorium, Bldg. 38A.
His topic will be, “Precision Communications for Precision Health: Challenges and Strategies for Reaching All of Us.” Among other subjects, he will discuss the challenges and strategies around:
- Meeting communities where they are (understanding their needs, concerns around research, meeting their literacy levels, etc.);
- Widening the definition of precision health and conveying the fact that All of Us is more than a genomics program;
- Ethics and logistics of targeting with marketing analytics; and
- Balancing the promise, with the hype and vision, with the need for patience.
The lecture, open to the public, will also be recorded and broadcast live and later archived at https://videocast.nih.gov/Summary.asp?Live=27103&bhcp=1.
