Yasnoff and Wilbanks both support the idea of pooling medical research and records, including personal information about genomes and disease risk, and making that pool of information available to health researchers.
They join The Daily Circuit Thursday, Jan. 24 to discuss the ways in which we can use health care information for the common good.
