SAN DIEGO, CAOctober 2. 2014 – Genetic testing provides the opportunity to gain all sorts of insight--from the potential to diagnose rare diseases, to providing targeted therapies, to prevention. Although we have historically focused on the use of genetic testing for diagnosis, less attention has been given to genetic testing’s clinical use in preventing disease and managing health. In the US, only 2% of the population has ever undergone genetic testing. However many studies show that the majority of patients and physicians believe that genetic testing is on the rise and that a significantly higher portion of the population could benefit from genetic testing to help identify risk for and even diagnose preventable conditions.
