In today’s podcast, we will discuss direct-to-consumer genetic testing. You may have seen these at-home genetic testing kits advertised on television or the internet. Genetic testing can be used to estimate a person's risk of developing specific diseases, such as cancer. However, direct-to-consumer genetic testing may have significant limitations, and the decision to be tested for cancer risk is complex. This podcast will be led by Dr. Nadine Tung, the Director of the Cancer Risk and Prevention Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
