This monograph explores current ethical challenges associated with advances in genetics technology and genomic health care from a wide cross-section of cultural, racial, religious, and technical perspectives. While these advances are at the cutting edge of understanding the causal factors of health and illness, they also demand that we acknowledge and respect the deeply complex and diverse moral and ethical concerns that can impact the decisions of individual patients and the lives of their families and communities.
