MyCode Community Health Initiative

To support this and other research efforts, Geisinger has expanded its MyCode initiative to create the Geisinger MyCode Community Health Initiative. Geisinger patients and staff who participate in the MyCode Community Health Initiative will make their samples and relevant medical histories available for any number of medical studies.

The information about participants' genes, along with health information from medical records may help researchers understand the causes of disease and how to prevent or treat them.

A portion of participants' samples and health information may be shared with other researchers, including government agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other public and commercial partners.
