Genomic Testing
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.

Earlier this year, we began laying the foundation for our comprehensive program — AdventHealth Genomics & 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.

WholeMe

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

Participants will learn about traits that may impact their health, such as lactose and gluten tolerance, magnesium and calcium levels. The DNA will also be evaluated for the genes linked to familial hypercholesterolemia, known as FH. FH is a life-threatening genetic condition that causes high cholesterol. If left untreated, it can lead to a heart attack, even in young adults.

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.

Ten-thousand people will have the opportunity to join the study. While its open to all adults who live in Florida, the enrollment sites will be based in the Orlando area. There is no cost to join the study.

 AdventHealth researchers are slated to begin recruiting for WholeMe in July.
