With a dedication to furthering the understanding of precision medicine, minority health, and health disparities, Dr. Landry, a second year BIRT fellow, attended several conferences in the fall. These conferences provided a unique opportunity for capacity building and networking in this interdisciplinary area. Dr. Landry is currently exploring ways to translate this into her research.
