Healthy Nevada Project is proud to offer no-cost genetic testing for certain cancers and heart disease risks that are often missed in routine clinical care. This population health study offers participants the opportunity to learn more about their health and genetic risks while serving as a model for other communities around the country. As a participant, you will be able to:

  • Receive no-cost, clinical grade genetic sequencing from a small saliva sample.
  • Learn about your genetic risks for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome (HBOC), Lynch Syndrome, and Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH).
  • Learn about your regional ancestry and wellness insights.

Early detection of disease-causing variants in the genes associated with these conditions has the power to improve health outcomes and raise awareness for your family members and future generations.

Healthy Nevada Project’s Milestones

Learn more about the study’s progress and positive impact on residents of Nevada below.

Knowledge Is Power
Betsey Brownfield’s Healthy Nevada Project, Helix genetic test, showed she carries the BRCA1 mutation. She began taking action to prevent the odds of getting cancer. She had an MRI, which was negative for breast cancer. She is continuing to monitor her breast health and is deciding whether or not to have a double mastectomy.

Knowledge Is Power
Jordan Stiteler’s dad died suddenly of a stroke nearly ten years ago — at only 45 years old. Her grandfather died at age 40. Now through the Healthy Nevada Project’s no-cost genetic testing, she is closer to understanding why that may have happened. And she can take proactive steps to prevent the unhealthy symptoms that often lead to a stroke.
