Precision Population Health:
Joining Forces to Reduce Disparities
Since UCSF hosted the Precision Public Health Summit in 2016, the institution has advocated for a targeted approach to public health, in line with the principles of Precision Medicine. This strategy requires a close integration of community partnerships, the basic, clinical and social sciences, and large-scale computational tools. The struggle to stem the COVID-19 pandemic illustrates how this process works in practice.
