Proactive Genetic Testing

About 1 in 20 people carry a significant health-related genetic risk of which they are completely unaware. PCNY partners with the genetic testing leader, Invitae, and can now analyze for the presence of medically actionable gene abnormalities- segments of DNA- associated with multiple forms of cancers and cardiovascular diseases. If detected early, these disorders can prompt effective lifestyle and medical preventive interventions. Please make sure that you inquire about this valuable service.
