Healthy Nevada Project: Share Your Genetic Testing Story with Us

As the Healthy Nevada Project continues on its way to 50,000 study participants, we are looking for people who discovered something about their health through genetic testing that has changed their lives.

From the beginning, our focus with the Healthy Nevada Project has been to deliver personalized health data to our communities that will ultimately drive positive change for our state. We’d like to hear from you. What insights have you garnered? Did you discover something about your health that changed your life?

Maybe you found out you are at an increased risk for disease, like Danny talks about in the above video. Or perhaps you received information, like Caroline, which changed how you eat to help you live a healthier life. Or just maybe you and your physician found a diagnosis for what seemed to be a mystery disease, like Heather.

 

If so, please share your story with us. We’d like to inspire others. Anthony Slonim, M.D., Dr. PH., president and CEO of Renown Health, may include your story and photo during his presentation at the TEDxUniversityofNevada program on Saturday, Feb. 23. We’d also showcase your story on our website and social media channels.

As a participant in the Healthy Nevada Project, we’d like to extend this unique opportunity to you. No story is too big or too small to share.

It’s Your Turn!

Dr. Anthony Slonim, president and CEO of Renown Health, is a featured speaker during TEDxUniversityofNevada on Saturday, February 23. And for that presentation, he wants to know: What did you learn by participating in the Healthy Nevada Project?

  1. I have had the same experience and almost every one else. I did receive my DNA results with the Geno 2.0. Do we receive health information as well?
  2. Ashlynne and Brooke - I will be sending you some contact info to help answer your concerns. Thanks very much for letting us know about your experience.
  3. I got my Geno 2.0 results through but nothing else. I have checked about every week for any updates but still nothing. It has been a while since anything has come though as is, other than offering things for me to buy.
  4. I was tested April 13 and have received my ancestry information from National Geo, but have not received any health related information. Does it take longer than four months do get it? I seem to be receiving the same thing as Brittany.
  5. I was notified by Helix that my specimen had been sequenced and relevant parts sent to National Geographic for my Geno 2.0. I was able to access that information. I have never received any results from Helix and feel the same way Brittany does that every email from Helix only wants me to buy something. Is the Geno 2.0 the only DNA results I will receive? I thought there would be a lot more about me personally. I would appreciate any insight you can provide. Thank you!
  6. I still haven't received my results and have reached out one other time, my husband and son also participated. I also feel like every email from Helix just wants me to buy something. Is there any way you could help us get the information we were trying to get from this.
    • Brittany, thank you for letting us know about your experience with the Healthy Nevada Project. I'm going to send you some contact info so you can also communicate this directly to folks in charge of the Healthy Nevada Project.
