One of the fastest-growing areas of health care is what's known as precision medicine. It uses a person’s DNA and other factors to develop personalized therapies for patients.

The director of the Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa, Dr. Raul Urrutia, has been running the center for two years. He says a health care "revolution" is underway.

"This is the science of the moment. This is the science your kids are going to want. In fact, it’s not only precision medicine but how the system will move with precision medicine," says Urrutia.

Support is provided by Dr. Lawrence and Mrs. Hannah Goodman for Innovation reporting.
