Personal Genetics Education Project

Insurance coverage, medical costs and genetic testing

In Business Week, John Lauerman tackles these subjects, looking specifically at genes related to Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), cancer risk, and its potential impact on families and children specifically.
