Making Precision Medicine More Precise
"All of Us" Study Looks at DNA, Environmental and Lifestyle Effects on Health

A new study from the National Institute  of Health will look for one million volunteers to see how the combined variables of DNA, environmental and lifestyle factors affect the health of Americans. 

The 10-year-long study will help develop precision medicine that can help create treatments more individualized for patients. Currently, precision medicine is most often used in cancer protocols but researchers hope one day this precision can branch into treatment for diabetes, heart disease, and more.

The Konica Minolta is one of the world's most popular scanner/printer combinations in the world. The emails from hackers look like legitimate attachments and are savvy enough to avoid spam filters. As always, stay vigilant when opening any kind of attachments.
