As we enter a brand-new year, many people look for a new outlook on their health with a renewed focus on proactive care.

In addition to regular screenings, wellness checks, good diet and exercise, it’s important to know about the health factors that may not be under your full control, like genetics. Your genetics serve as a blueprint to your health—and many people aren’t aware that genetic testing has become increasingly affordable and can unlock valuable health insights. This knowledge is especially critical for underrepresented communities, who can be more at risk for certain health conditions and less represented in trials and testing for those conditions.

Invitae can help you take control of your health. While insurance may pay for genetic testing for some disorders, Invitae also has an affordable out of pocket option.
