23andMe: DNA TESTING

Your DNA determines a lot more than the color of your eyes and hair. From a DNA test, you can discover how your genetics may influence your weight, sleep quality, and more.

With their Health + Ancestry Service, available free to U.S. employees, 23andMe makes it easy to learn what makes you you. You can use your free test kit to collect a little saliva and mail it to 23andMe in the prepaid package. Then, in about 6–8 weeks, you’ll have insights into your genetic health risks, carrier status, traits, wellness, and ancestry through more than 75 reports you can access online.

You may then factor that information—along with your doctor’s advice—into the lifestyle choices you make.

Access to this service is offered as part of the Live Well Program, which reflects Lam’s commitment to a culture of well-being that empowers you to lead a healthy lifestyle.
