In his new book, Am I My Genes, Dr. Robert Klitzman, director of the Columbia University Master of Science in Bioethics program, addresses the timely issues surrounding genetic testing, which has greatly improved the rapidity of the diagnosis and treatments of diseases such as breast cancer, Alzheimer's, cystic fibrosis, Huntington's, and many other ailments.
With this improved knowledge in the realm of medical technology, however, comes an emerging minefield of difficult decisions for people regarding whether to get tested, and if so, what to do when the results are in. The book has been well-received, including the following media coverage:
- The New York Times
- Bloomberg News
- Huffington Post
- National Public Radio
- Huffington Post: Religion & Science Review
- Huffington Post: Healthy Living
- Columbia Spectator
In addition to these reviews, Am I My Genes has been excerpted by PsychologyToday.
