Reliable Information about Genetics and Your Practice

Doctor with TabletThe pace of change in genetics in healthcare is staggering as new tests are being rapidly introduced and adopted into clinical practice.  The genetic testing sector represents a large and growing commercial enterprise, and we are seeing aggressive marketing aimed at both healthcare providers and patients like never before.  At times, there may be tremendous pressure to adopt new technologies before there are practice guidelines to provide guidance or evidence to support use of a new test.  The Genetic Support Foundation strives to be a resource about genetics and health that you can trust for up-to-date, evidenced-based information, without industry bias.
