by The Editor • March 28, 2016
A discussion about pharmacogenetic testing, palliative care and wellness in the geriatric population. Listen here.
Dr. Mark Carlson and Laurie Rock are leading the pack when it comes to innovative solutions to caring for seniors.
It’s not just about chronic disease management, its about wellness, being proactive about living well that got my attention and wanting to speak with Dr. Carlson. He explains not only pharmacogenetic testing, but with 25+ years of oncology experience behind him, his in depth knowledge about what it takes to creatively address quality of life in the midst of health care challenges is enlightening. Time. It really is about taking time with people. And it is about utilizing the latest developments in medicine and pharmacy to clearly develop a plan, especially when a person has “tried everything,” and is still suffering.
