Session Abstract – PMWC 2017 Silicon Valley

Session Synopsis: Despite the impressive advances in precision medicine, none have been effectively implemented in standard medical practice. Within the realm of genetics, hereditary cancer testing was one of the earliest advances and is now poised to be the first to achieve proper adoption. We will discuss the barriers to adoption, why it will be important to implement broader screening, and what this means for the adoption of precision medicine more generally.
