The more you know about your health, the more empowered you are to take charge of your wellness. A first-of-its-kind genomics research study in Florida, WholeMe screens for hereditary heart conditions and cancer — and reveals 22 fascinating insights about your health and heritage. Reserve your no-cost genetic screening today to get a personalized view of your health.

By participating in WholeMe, in addition to testing your DNA for FH, you will be able to find out about your ancestry traits and other 22 personal genetic traits that will help you get to know you at a whole different level.

More Health Insights

We're excited to inform you that the AdventHealth WholeMe research study is evolving! In this new chapter, AdventHealth will be partnering with Sema4, a patient-centered health intelligence company, to deliver even more comprehensive DNA test results.

As part of your WholeMe participation and consent, we have completed additional interpretations for other medical conditions, such as additional hereditary heart conditions and hereditary cancers. A full list of conditions tested can be found below.

You'll have access to a care navigator who will assist you with the next steps. If you have a positive result in one of the additional genetic conditions being tested, you may be asked to complete a series of follow-up appointments, including:

  1. A confirmatory genetic test with Sema4 – a new saliva kit will be sent directly to your home with instructions for providing your sample and mailing it back.
  2. A genetic counseling session with Sema4 – this can be scheduled directly with Sema4 through their patient portal and is done as a virtual visit.
  3. An appointment with one of AdventHealth's medical geneticists – a care navigator will assist with scheduling this follow-up appointment.

We recommend creating an AdventHealth account so you can access your results as soon as they are available. You can register for an account here.

WholeMe

In partnership with Helix, a personal genomics company, we are launching a groundbreaking project – WholeMe, the first research study of its kind in Florida.

Participants will learn about traits that may impact their daily life, such as lactose tolerance, caffeine metabolism and sweet tooth. The DNA will also be evaluated for the genes linked to familial hypercholesterolemia, known as FH – a genetic condition that causes high cholesterol. If left untreated, it can lead to a heart attack, even in young adults.

Individuals identified with FH will complete a confirmatory blood test and one session with a genetic counselor. In addition, they will be connected with one of our cardiologists to take preventive measures to benefit their health.

Our researchers hope to show how genomics can be successfully integrated into health care to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases and empower consumers with potential life-saving information about their health.

When It Comes To Your Health,

Is Knowledge Power?

What if doctors could uncover your risk for disease and help you prevent it? Or determine whether a therapy or dose of medicine will be effective for your specific health needs? What if your health care plan was based on a sample size of 1 – just you?

With genomic profiles, physicians and researchers can determine with unprecedented accuracy if someone is at risk for cancer, heart disease and other conditions. From disease prevention to diagnosis to treatment, genomics is the future of medicine and will be an essential component of all health care.

In 2019, we began laying the foundation for our comprehensive program — AdventHealth Genomics and Personalized Health — which will ultimately provide comprehensive genomics testing, analysis, interpretation and genetic counseling services.

When it comes to treating the whole person, our genomics program will deliver on the renewed focus we promised during the launch of our new brand, AdventHealth. We believe personalized medicine that focuses on the whole person is superior health care and nothing is more personal than your DNA.

At AdventHealth, we believe knowledge is power.
