  • Completion of the Human Genome Project unleashed a wealth of information but it remains unclear how best to leverage that information to fulfill the promise of genomics to benefit patients.
  • This Scientific Statement covers opportunities and challenges in broadly implementing new interdisciplinary models in academic medical centers and community settings addressing genomics.
  • In the future, genomics will play an important role in shifting clinical care from its current focus on being reactive (treating disease) to being proactive (preventing disease).
