AdvaMed Convenes Panel to Address Health Disparities
Date:10/29/2007

State of the Art Diagnostics Important to Detect, Diagnose and Personalize Treatment

WHAT: AdvaMed is holding a briefing for Congressional staff and the

media on the importance of molecular diagnostics in addressing

diseases that disproportionately impact the African-American

community.

There are many chronic diseases that disproportionately impact

African-Americans that, if caught earlier and managed more

effectively, would save lives and reduce costs to the health care

system.

A leading panel of experts will address the issue of health

disparities and ways to reduce them by improving access to

state of the art diagnostic laboratory tests.

WHO:

-- Rep. Bobby L. Rush, D-Illinois

-- Del. Donna Christensen, D-Virgin Islands

-- Dr. Albert W. Morris, Immediate Past President, National Medical

Association and Diagnostic Radiologist

Association
