DCM Precision Medicine Study
July 29, 2021 – 7:30-9:15PM ET
An online event for all study participants of the DCM Precision Medicine and DCM Discovery studies
Join Dr. Ray Hershberger and the DCM Precision Medicine investigative team for a presentation of key study results. We also invite all study participants of prior DCM Research Projects to join.
The DCM Precision Medicine Study consists of a diverse cohort of individuals with DCM and their family members of African and European ancestry, as well as a subset of individuals who are of Hispanic ethnicity. By studying individuals with DCM and their family members, we aimed to describe the proportion of DCM that is familial and the proportion of probands with an identified genetic cause of their DCM. Our diverse cohort allows us to consider the genetic differences that contribute to DCM between sex, race, and ethnic groups.
All content presented will be prepared especially for study participants, and will address the following questions:
- If I have DCM, what is the chance that someone in my family will get DCM?
- How much of DCM is genetic?
- Is DCM different between blacks and whites?
- If I have DCM, how do I best engage me family to prevent DCM?
You will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to the event and also for live Q and A sessions throughout the event.
