The Texas Center for Health Disparities, a National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities Center of Excellence, presents an annual conference to discuss prevention, awareness education, and ongoing research about health disparities both in Texas and among the national population. The 2014 Annual Texas Conference on Health Disparities brought together experts in research, patient care, and community outreach on the DQRole of Genomics in Eliminating Health Disparities.DQ Rapid advances in genomics and pharmacogenomics are leading the field of medicine to use genetics and genetic risk to build personalized or individualized medicine strategies. We are at a critical juncture of ensuring such rapid advances benefit diverse populations. Relatively few forums have been organized around the theme of the role of genomics in eliminating health disparities. The conference consisted of three sessions addressing DQGene-Environment Interactions and Health Disparities,DQ DQPersonalized Medicine and Elimination of Health Disparities,DQ and DQEthics and Public Policy in the Genomic Era.DQ This article summarizes the basic science, clinical correlates, and public health data presented by the speakers.
