Pathway Genomics has partnered with Scripps Center for Executive Health. The partnership complements Scripps Center for Executive Health, allowing it to offer elements of Pathway Genomics’ extensive suite of genetic tests to patients through Scripps Health physicians, clinics, hospitals and other health care organizations.

In aligning with Scripps Center for Executive Health’s mission of providing early detection and preventive health care strategies for its clients, the ability to offer Pathway Genomics’ genetic testing services will assist physicians and patients in personalizing their health management strategies according to a patient’s genetic risks.

“Pathway’s ongoing mission is to help individuals personalize their health care experiences, and help them live their lives in a healthy way,” said Jim Plante, Pathway Genomics’ founder and CEO. “We are proud to align with Scripps Center for Executive Health, as they have also demonstrated an active interest in doing the same.”

“Genetic testing will play a crucial role in empowering our patients to take preventative steps to maintaining their health and in further staving off the expression of diseases associated with specific genetic markers,” said James Tuck, manager at Scripps Center for Executive Health.

“Genetic testing will play a crucial role in empowering our patients to take preventative steps to maintaining their health and in further staving off the expression of diseases associated with specific genetic markers,” said James Tuck, manager at Scripps Center for Executive Health.

Through Scripps Center for Executive Health, patients now have access to Pathway Genomics’ genetic tests, which include testing for diet, nutrition and exercise response, and the propensity to develop serious diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and common cancers.

“The Scripps Center for Executive Health WholePersonTM Examination offers our patients the highest quality care available – our patients expect that level of care and that is what we give them,” said James Tuck, manager at Scripps Center for Executive Health. “Genetic testing will play a crucial role in empowering our patients to take preventative steps to maintaining their health and in further staving off the expression of diseases associated with specific genetic markers.”

The genetic analysis and interpretation is conducted by Pathway Genomics, and all that is needed from the patient is a saliva sample and completion of a brief health and lifestyle questionnaire. The results of the test can then be incorporated into a customized long-term health strategy, provided by a Scripps Center for Executive Health physician.
