The Luxembourg Institute of Health and the Ministry of National Education celebrate the launch of a book on “Precision Health” for high school students in Luxembourg
On the initiative of the Association des Ingénieurs et Scientifiques du Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), in close collaboration with the SCRIPT (Service de Coordination de la Recherche et de l’Innovation pédagogiques et technologiques), has developed and launched a book on precision health. It provides a comprehensive overview of current health, medicine and research and, most importantly, how these disciplines will evolve in the future.
On October 20, 2022, The Minister of National Education for Children and Youth and Minister of Higher Education and Research, Claude Meisch, and the Chief Executive Officer of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), Ulf Nehrbass, officially presented the book “Precision Health” during a ceremony at the Université Populaire in Belval. Lead author and director of the Precision Health Department of the LIH, Dr Guy Fagherazzi, gave a speech describing the goals and contents of the book.
Designed for students around the country to learn about the future of healthcare and motivate them to shape it themselves, the “Precision Health” book will be distributed in December to high schools nationwide.
Focusing on the next generation of healthcare, the book asks the following questions:
What does the future of healthcare look like?
Will doctors or robots care for us?
Will artificial intelligence change the way we diagnose patients?
Throughout the book, various scientific experts from the LIH answer said questions in detail and describe the overall healthcare world of tomorrow. The Minister, CEO of the LIH, and all of the authors encourage students to discover how to be part of the healthcare revolution and become innovators in the next generation of precision health. The book is available for download in English, French and German at http://precisionhealth.lu/
