Financial Challenges in the Fight for Independent Genetic Counseling Services

Image description: cartoon of an individual with a large mustache, a top hat, and cape standing behind a brown and red booth holding test tubes in front of a crowd of stick fingers. The booth has a banner reading "DTC snake oil" at the top and signs that read "Tests 100% of the DNA!", "Test your infant for ALL health conditions!," and "Holiday sale today!" A white speech bubble reads "Step right up! We are the ONLY ones who can give you ALL the answers!"

Silhouettes of 44 people encircle the text, “Updated 23andMe test still misses moist people with BRCA1/2 hereditary cancer risks”. About 1 in 4 of the people are colored in red and the rest are colored in pink. The pink silhouette is intended to represent people who carry a BRCA1 or BRCA2 pathogenic variant that would be missed by the 23andMe test.
