Rank #12: Genetic Summit Special: James Has His Genes Interpreted... Live!
In anticipation of our upcoming Interpreting Your Genetics Summit, our co-founder James Maskell has decided to let you listen in on his one hour genetic interpretation session for a very special podcast episode. Delivering the interpretation is Yael Joffe, RD, PhD who keynotes during the Summit itself, leading a day of discussions on nutrigenomics.
If you have ever wondered what it would look like to be part of a team delivering “genomic medicine”, here is a look under the hood. Listen in now!
This podcast is made possible by one of our Summit sponsors DNALife. There are few reasons why we chose this test, firstly because this test can only be ordered through a practitioner ensuring that the results will get a professional, responsible interpretation. Dr. Joffe was also centrally involved in creating this test, curating only those SNPs and other data points that have enough good research data to infer real meaning. Our hope is that this session will encourage you to attend the Summit, and take advantage of the huge opportunity for the Functional Medicine community to deliver the next era of precision medicine. If nothing else, you will see that genetic interpretation can be an empowering experience.
