Genetic Testing: What's the risk of knowing too much about ourselves?

Traditionally, a genetic test would be performed by a healthcare professional when they suspect a potential genetic disease or disorder. However, with the onslaught of direct-to-consumer genetic testing, anyone can test their DNA for heritage, ancestry, or disease markers. Is there a risk to understanding the makeup of your DNA? How private are your results? What types of discrimination could you open yourself up to? With testing, we can seek better treatment and practice preventative medicine, but what are the potential adverse personal and societal consequences?

Panelists:

Heather Dorman,
Coordinator of Genetic Counselling Services at Health Sciences North and a team member

Mary Huska,
Clinical Bioethicist at HSN

Dr. Thomas Merritt
Laurentian University, Canada Research Chair in Genomics and Bioinformatics
