Population Genomic Screening: Toward a Future Standard of Care with Miranda Hallquist, CGC, M.Sc

  • There are an expanding number of research and clinical programs identifying genomic variants in individuals unselected for personal or family health history. Returning clinically actionable genomic results to patient-participants provides an opportunity to tailor their health care to facilitate prevention, early detection, and treatment strategies. This webinar will review the current landscape of population genomic screening and highlight gaps in current knowledge and implementation. The discussion will highlight where further research is needed and potential barriers to patients accessing genomic screening.
