Medicalizing Risk: How experts and consumers manage uncertainty in genetic health testing

Meghna Mukherjee and Skyler Wang, graduate student affiliates of ISSI's Center for Ethnographic Research, are two of the co-authors of this new article in PLOS ONE. Here, they examine how experts and patient-consumers turn to different resources accessible to them to gain clarity on knowledge gaps that can help them manage their genetic risk states.
