During this global pandemic, social inequities and health disparities are being exposed and discussed more than ever. For some, it’s the first time we have talked about social justice or systemic racism in healthcare. For others, we have felt their effects for some time. These inequities and disparities also exist within the genetic testing experience. In this episode, we speak to expert researcher and genetic counselor, Altovise T.

We also suggest ways that genetic testing developers, marketers, and medical professionals can be aware of and work to dismantle these inequities.
