New Monograph on Communicating Risks and Benefits

For your interest, the Risk Communication Advisory Committee of the FDA recently published a monograph, entitled "Communicating Risks and Benefits: An Evidence-Based User's Guide". This is a valuable resource that provides readers, clinicians and public health folks with guidance about how to understand, interpret and communicate about risk. It is relevant to our discussion about the risk information provided by 23andMe and other genomic profiling services. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to serve on this committee, learn about this important topic and contribute to this effort.
