Gene analysis offers parents comprehensive look at baby’s health
If you could see what your baby’s medical future holds, would you want to know?
Over the next five years, several medical facilities across the country will start offering parents the option of having a complete gene analysis done on their newborns.
The gene sequencing should reveal any genetic disorders or conditions the child might have that could affect them in the future.
Scientists are wanting to determine whether early treatment for genetic diseases can make a difference.
The testing should begin as early as next year in Boston, San Francisco, Kansas City and North Carolina.
The program is part of a $20 million grant given to the medical facilities.
