What is Precision Medicine?

Most of the time when you are sick, you can go to store and pick up something at the counter to make you feel better, but in some cases we have patients that need more precise treatment. At Arkansas Children's we have precision medicine, which is a personalized test to help guide treatment for your child. Today we sit down with Ashley Chastain, Mom of Harper. Harper has gone through our precision medicine testing. Ashley shares her and Harper's journey with Precision Medicine and how it has impacted her and her family for the better. After talking with Ashley we sit down with Dr. Brad Schaefer, Professor of Genetics and Pediatrics at Arkansas Children's. Dr. Schaefer gives us the medical side of Precision Medicine and its benefits.
