Pharmacogenetics is the study of how genetic differences among individuals cause varied responses to a drug. Pharmacogenomic testing can identify individual genetic differences and how they relate to medication response. Genomic markers can be clinically used to personalize medication treatment for each patient. Screening for polypharmacy and potentially inappropriate medications could reduce the risk of adverse events, enhance the quality of life and reduce health care spending for older cancer patients.

Please join the Arkansas Geriatric Education Collaborative and the UAMS Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging in a free video teleconference for healthcare professionals, non-healthcare professionals, and other interested persons, for this event titled “Introduction to Pharmacogenetics and Older Adults”. Our speaker is Dr. Elvin T. Price, an Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmacogenomics) in the College of Pharmacy and Assistant Professor, Genetic Counseling in the College of Health-Related Professions at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. In addition, Dr. Price is also an Intermittent Pharmacist at the John L. McClellan Memorial VA Health System in Little Rock and an AGEC Geriatric Fellow.
