S07E07: Pharmacogenomics as the Patient Advocate for Better Health Outcomes w/ Mark A Smith

I hope everyone’s been enjoying the recent holidays and the weather. It’s finally feeling like spring here in NY! Today I am so excited to talk with my guest about becoming our own advocates in healthcare, and in what we are prescribed as part of that journey. We will be talking about pharmacogenomics as the tool that will help us usher in the future where safety comes first.


Today’s guest, Mark A. Smith began his career as a Special Agent with the FBI working on organized and white-collar crime. Followed by a Human Resources path from Pfizer, to PepsiCo, and ending as CHRO with Blockbuster Entertainment. Following an acquisition Mark returned to Western New York where he became actively involved in Children’s Behavioral Health at both the state and national level.


Mark’s passion is focused on the clinical and economic value of Pharmacogenomics (PGx), and has placed him in the center of the national drive to “Standard of Care” for PGx. His network in autism, genetics, rare conditions, healthcare systems, and payers positions him as an influential individual in the “fixing” of the American healthcare system.
