NorthShore recognizes the importance of providing care to patients that is tailored to each person’s health and family history. If you choose a NorthShore Medical Group primary care physician, your annual physical will now include a new Genetic and Wellness Assessment. This tool will help you and your doctor identify areas where genomic information can help guide medical management in a more precise manner. Read more about this tool at northshore.org/r3. “Genetic information can be a powerful tool in understanding health risk and recommending earlier screenings, especially when patients review the information with their primary care physicians,” said Peter Hulick, MD, Medical Director for NorthShore’s Center for Personalized Medicine. “This is one more example of how we’re advancing our approach to personalized medicine.”
