Media Buzz: Access to Genetic Testing

Posted Nov 19 2009 10:02pm

Happy new year, everyone! I just returned from an unusually exciting break (more on that in later posts) to find that genetic testing is the cover story of this week’s US News & World Reports:

Unraveling Your DNA’s Secrets: Do-it-yourself genetic tests promise to reveal your risk of coming down with a disease. But do they really deliver?

Also, you can now listen to public radio’s December 21 Health Dialogues’ program online:

Genes, Disease and Difference

The program begins with the story of a woman who pursued genetic testing for tamoxifen efficacy, but the panel discussion is wide-ranging, with perspectives from all over the industry.
