Session Chairs: Ned Patterson and Clifford Steer, University of Minnesota
Session summary: The biological revolution linking genotypic variation to health and disease has created vast potential for tending to the health of individuals based on personal health risks, drug sensitivities, nutritional needs and yet to be discovered variables. Individualized medicine requires large investments and resource commitment to address individual needs. Public health, based on scientific knowledge of generalized health risks and rewards, requires investments and commitments to population and health impacts of local and global environments. Given a fixed set of resources, maximizing the potential of both is challenging at best. Here, we highlight scientific complexities of individual and population health in animals and humans as impacted by environment.
