California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine Meetings

The California Precision Medicine Advisory Council holds meetings quarterly. The Council meets in person, alternating between Northern and Southern California. Under California’s current stay at home order, meetings are being held virtually.

Members of the public are invited to submit their comments and questions prior to or during each meeting by email or speaking during the public comment agenda item. Agendas will have at least one designated opportunity for public participation. Minutes posted with a Draft watermark have not been approved by the Council.

Upcoming conferences, webinars, talks, and other events related to precision medicine are also listed here. Inclusion in this list does not constitute an endorsement from CIAPM or OPR. Suggestions for events are welcome via email.
