David Ewing Duncan, director of the Center for Life Science Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, published an “old-fashioned call to arms and action plan for a new age of health care.” The Personalized Health Manifesto was developed with the participation of about three dozen life science leaders in science, medicine, business, and more.

The report includes calls to action for the life science community, policymakers, patients, and others as the U.S. sits on “the cusp of a vital new era of health care, one in which medicine will shift from primarily addressing illness to a greater emphasis on prediction and prevention, and on individualized care.” The full report is available on the Kauffman Foundation website.
