Should I Encourage My Kids To Do “23 and Me”?
This whole area of data protection and privacy is of great concern to us and our clients. Do I participate and encourage family members to participate in genetic testing?
If I/they chose to, what privacy protection is built into these systems?
When answering questions on an insurance application or exam, will that question of “have you ever had a genetic test” open up a set of unintended consequences? Could an incorrect answer be viewed as a “material misrepresentation” by an insurance company or employer or financial institution?
Please read on to see some relevant articles and an American Business white paper to find out more about this topic.
I welcome your experience and comments.
