Color: The next frontier in genomics and precision healthcare

Color: The next frontier in genomics and precision healthcare

with Wendy McKennon, VP of Product & User Experience

Does the future of preventative care lie in your DNA?

As genetic testing becomes more mainstream, the potential lying beyond novelty products revealing your ancestry is staggering. In healthcare, DNA sequencing is already providing real medical value, but its costs have largely limited it to individuals at high-risk of disease, already working with specialists.

Color believe that genomics should be brought further upstream and used as a preventive tool for whole populations of people. Making clinical genetics accessible as part of routine care would mean spotting the likelihood of disease, understanding risk, and paving the way for tailored interventions at scale, way ahead of time.

Join Hanno and Wendy as they explore the role design, genetics and technology play in the movement from ‘sickcare’ to affordable, preventative healthcare, covering everything from Google HEART design principles and genetic counselors to DNA sequencing labs.
