HudsonAlpha elective genome program makes headlines

HudsonAlpha was one of three institutions recently featured in a STAT News article about genome sequencing for healthy individuals. David Bick, MD, spoke with STAT about the elective genome program at HudsonAlpha and the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine.

“I think there’s just more and more interest from patients and families not only because of 23andMe and the like, but because there’s just this understanding that if you can find out information about your health before you become sick, then really our opportunity as physicians to do something to help you is much greater,” said Bick.
