Join us at the forefront as we talk genetic testing in primary care with Dr Dallas Read, esteemed gynecologist and **the only** medical geneticist at Tufts Medical Center. Topics include: what internists should be comfortable testing for in the office, how and when to refer for screening, what tests to order, how to interpret test results, how to handle direct-to-consumer results or requests, and so much more! For years, the medical community has been talking about the immense potential for genetic testing to guide diagnosis and treatment. But has it realized its full potential? The answer to that seems to be a resounding no at the moment--but the days of ubiquitous genetic testing to identify disease and disease risk may not be so far off after all.
