Illumina Selects Genome Medical to Manage UYG Symposia

After six successful years of supporting the UYG symposia, we are excited to announce that our partners at Genome Medical have been selected to manage the symposia and support the alumni moving forward.

The Understand Your Genome (UYG) symposia was founded by Illumina in 2012 with the goal of increasing the awareness and visibility of personal genomic medicine through key opinion leader events. Our mission has always been to responsibly advance clinical genomics into health care, and after hosting 40 UYGs around the world, we consider ourselves privileged to have served the engaged community who supported that goal. To continue on with our mission, we are excited to announce that our partners at Genome Medical, a nationwide medical practice solely focused on genetics and genomics, will take over management of the symposia and will support UYG alumni moving forward.

We want to thank you for being the pioneers that built this community, and we hope that you will consider this invitation to continue to harness the power of your genome by working with Genome Medical to personalize your health care decisions.

What This Means for You: Your Options

We have made available three options for all UYG alumni to provide as much flexibility as possible based on your personal preference, but as always, you still remain in control of your personal clinical genomic data. To learn about your options, please visit www.understandyourgenome.com

If you have more specific questions, please contact us at UYG@illumina.com.
