Discover How Genomics Can Help Your Child
AdventHealth for Children is dedicated to the advancement of pediatric genomics. With this commitment we have partnered with San Diego-based Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine to bring rapid and ultra-rapid whole genome sequencing to Central Florida families for the first time. The testing will help critically ill babies and children in intensive care with unexplained medical conditions receive appropriate care.
We believe that the foundation of whole person care lies in genomics and is the future of medicine.
“Genomics is the future of medicine. This advanced testing can have a significant impact on how we diagnose and treat patients,. Rady Children’s Institute is a leader in genomic medicine, and this partnership will help us provide the best care to some of the littlest and sickest patients in our care.” - Dr. Rajan Wadhawan, Senior Executive Officer, AdventHealth for Children.
