December 2022 | Issue 63
On 16 December, we marked the launch of the SG100K study, a landmark comprehensive population health study of 100,000 Singaporeans in collaboration with our partner healthcare institutions. We were honoured to have Minister for Health Mr Ong Ye Kung officially launch the SG100K study and enrol as a participant in support of this endeavour.
In this issue, we look at how the study will identify the social, environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors associated with diseases prevalent in Singapore. This could pave the way for the development of better tools through precision medicine to predict and prevent chronic diseases among Singaporeans and other Asian populations.
Read all these and more in the latest issue of The LKCMedicine newsletter. Happy holidays!
