Interdisciplinary Introduction to P4 Medicine
This elective course, available to undergraduate, graduate and medical students, provides an introduction to medicine as a proactive discipline.

One leading framework for this vision is the P4 Health model of healthcare delivery which envisions health care as predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory. This class (lecture + lab) is designed to provide a platform for education about the future of medicine and to train future leaders in this emerging movement of proactive health practices.
