Genomic Health Clinic

In the Division of Genomic Medicine, we strive to provide people with their personal genomic information to help them better understand and manage their health. Our goal is to identify risk earlier to better prevent disease or to detect and treat it early. Our clinical program offers patients one-on-one counseling about their genomic risk.

What is the purpose of the Genomic Health Clinic?

Both our genes and our environment affect our health. Genomic risk refers to the contribution of our genes to our chance of developing certain health conditions. Clinical testing can help to identify genomic risk. This information can empower people to take action to detect and treat disease early on when doing so may be more effective, or to prevent disease altogether.
