The Implementation of Universal Genetic Screening

by Christopher Tobias, PhD, President

Genetic screening offers a powerful insight into our genome, which, by identifying thousands of genetic diseases, will help lead to improved patient care and treatment, and also to the next wave of therapeutic intervention.
 
We are now in an age in which cost should not prevent patients and families from receiving this technology, especially when more than 7,000 known rare diseases could be identified due to genetic variations that lead to disease manifestation. My hope is that our presidential candidates will soon highlight this amazing genetic breakthrough and champion its implementation as well as promote the importance of providing adequate and responsible healthcare coverage for everyone.
