October 2022 | Issue 62

This month, Singaporeans continue to debate on the Healthier SG White Paper. The new strategy emphasises preventive care and aims to have citizens take charge of their own healthcare, where they can enrol with a single doctor who will support them in their health needs throughout their lives. 

In this issue, we look at how the School will support these efforts through its research initiatives with a strong focus on Asian populations including the recently established Centre for Microbiome Medicine which studies the microbiome of the local and regional population and the diseases they are linked to, and the Singapore Severe Asthma Registry that aims to find targeted treatment for Asian patients with severe asthma. 

Don’t miss out on all these and more in the latest issue of The LKCMedicine newsletter!
