Personalized Medicine in Primary Care
This course is for both physicians and nurse practitioners interested in adding a personalized medicine component to their existing practice, using both lifestyle medicine and lab-based metabolomic assessments. The curriculum, as taught by Dr. Kalish, provides an introduction to the biochemistry and metabolic pathways that underlie the common principles of applied nutrition addressing common conditions seen in the primary care setting, including atherosclerosis and metabolic syndrome.
Through a case study provided by co-teacher, Dr. Bill Queale, the class explores the integration of a personalized medicine approach into a conventional primary care practice. Dr. Queale also addresses the challenges faced by primary care practitioners and reviews how his work in partnership with a nurse practitioner has led to outstanding results for their shared patient base. Through both a science-based and clinically-focused perspective, Personalized Medicine in Primary Care presents a new model for those practitioners wishing to add services in lifestyle and personalized medicine to their practices.
