23andMe Tweetchat Recap

Our most recent #genCSM Tweetchat this past Tuesday featured special guest 23andMe! Their Medical Affairs Team joined us for a genetic testing discussion including Altovise Ewing, Ph.D., LCGC, Stacey Detweiler, MS, LCGC, and Jeffrey Pollard, M.D.

23andMe answered questions about what they offer in genetic testing along with how they educate consumers and protect consumers’ data.

Check out some highlights from the conversation below and read the full official Tweetchat transcript here.

One of the biggest concerns in the patient community about the 23andMe BRCA product is that many consumers seem to believe they are having full BRCA testing, and don’t realize that they are only being tested for the 3 BRCA mutations common in people of Jewish ancestry.

Don’t forget, these are only a few highlights of our chat, read the full transcript for more information. Stay tuned for our next #GenCSM Tweetchat by following us on Twitter: @GenC_CSM, @mygenecounsel, and @BRCAresponder!
