The June 2015 issue of Minnesota Medicine, the official publication of the Minnesota Medical Association, features a piece on "The New World of Genetic Test, Families and Privacy" by Consortium founding chair Susan M. Wolf. The article reviews case law dating back to the 1990s about a physician's "duty to warn" and shares insights about medical information-sharing by physicians gained from original research led by the Consortium. Since 2005, we've collaborated with scholars across the country on a series of National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded projects analyzing the issues involved in the return of genomic results and incidental findings to research participants. The resulting publications have had a major impact on the national debate.
