Commit to talks on patient data and public health


10th August 2017

Excerpt from article:

“Considerations about an individual’s confidentiality and privacy that exist in other areas of medicine cannot always be applied in genomics: one person’s genomic data can have implications for other family members. One effort to define these concepts (and to communicate essential information) is under way through a global survey, ‘Your DNA, Your Say’, being carried out by the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), a group of large regional initiatives that collect genomic data.”
