Question special

Thank you to Medstro, NEJM, and our esteemed guests for engaging in this timely conversation. I'm looking forward to our dialogue over these next few days.

So to start our conversation, let's talk about where we stand with personal genetic information and privacy in 2015. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) was passed in 2008. Now seven years later, what new concerns have emerged that raise the stakes around this information? How have technology and other legal proceedings changed the landscape since GINA? For our experts in an array of genetics-related fields, how are these progressions shaping or limiting your work?
