LEHI, Utah & LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Grant Reflects Ancestry’s Focus on Working with Providers, Consumers Toward Improved Health Outcomes

Ancestry®, the global leader in family history and consumer genomics, announced it has made a $1 million educational grant to UpToDate®, a leading evidence-based clinical resource, to independently develop information for healthcare providers to help them interpret and act on the results of genetic testing. Announced during a mainstage discussion at the 2019 HLTH innovation conference by Margo Georgiadis, chief executive officer of Ancestry, the grant is part of Ancestry’s long-term commitment to partnering with healthcare stakeholders to improve preventive health.

As millions of consumers choose to take DNA tests to gain greater insight into their health and wellness, healthcare providers must be prepared to have informed and meaningful conversations with their patients, helping them understand how their genes influence their health to enable them to take actionable next steps.
