College of Pharmacy forms student chapter of the Personalized Medicine Coalition
Students in the Ohio Northern University Raabe College of Pharmacy have formed a student chapter of the Personalized Medicine Coalition (PMC). More than 100 students comprise the newly formed group.
The purpose of this ONU student PMC chapter is to foster the development and awareness of personalized medicine both educationally and professionally. The organization consists of six sections based on the PMC document “The Case for Personalized Medicine”: technology, regulatory policy, payment, health information technology, genetic non-discrimination and medical education.
Each section is responsible for “scanning” the literature and news to update the entire membership at each monthly meeting. The monthly meetings will consist of section summaries and a presentation by an invited speaker. The first meeting was held this May and featured attorney Kevin Hill, who discussed the legal ramifications of personalized medicine. Additionally, the student chapter’s outreach project for the 2012-13 academic year will be the development and dissemination of an education program for the public. Additionally, the education program will be adapted for presentation in high school biology courses so as to introduce personalized medicine to high school students.
