NorthShore is embarking on the next major step in advancing our understanding of how comprehensive genomic information relates to improved, more personalized healthcare. The Genomic Health Initiative (GHI) is an ambitious program for members of our community to help shape the future of Personalized Medicine.
This research project will give our physician and research experts the opportunity to more proactively learn about the science behind diseases and conditions, and apply this knowledge directly to a clinical setting to improve patient outcomes.
By participating in this initiative—which involves a simple blood draw at any of NorthShore's hospital outpatient labs or patient service centers—you can help our physicians and researchers more precisely predict, prevent and treat disease while improving the future of health in our community and the medical field for generations to come.
For further questions about this initiative read our frequently asked questions or call us at 224.364.7470.
We encourage participants in our Genomic Health Initiative to also consider participating in Health Heritage—an online application that ties in with your electronic medical record that allows you to track and record both personal and familial medical history.
