How Will I Be Notified About Any Clinical Results?


The Healthy Nevada Project only returns health results back to the 1-2% of participants who are found to be at risk for certain hereditary conditions that are considered clinically actionable. If you consent to be notified about the results and we find any genetic variant associated with increased risk for Familial Hypercholesterolemia, Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome or Lynch Syndrome in your DNA, a coordinator from our partner Genome Medical will call you.

They will remind you of the study and verify that you are still interested in learning about your results. They will set up an appointment/phone call with a Genome Medical genetic counselor who will inform you about your genetic findings and answer any questions you may have. The genetic counselor will suggest that you contact your primary care provider to confirm your results and to create a further plan of action. You will receive a copy of your genetic report along with information to share with your primary care provider and family members.

What if I Don’t’ Have a Primary Care Provider or Health Insurance?

If you do not have primary care provider or health insurance, you will receive an in-depth consultation from a Genome Medical genetic counselor and you will be offered secondary testing to confirm your findings. When your results are reviewed with the genetic counselor, they will suggest an action plan for you, provide information for your family members and refer you to a local primary care provider.

Will I Get Any More Results?
The Healthy Nevada Project researchers will continue to report on other hereditary risks and we will update the screening of your DNA as genomic medicine advances.  Continue to check your emails regularly and if you have any concerns about your health, consult with your physician.
