Companies Tout Psychiatric Pharmacogenomic Testing, But Is It Ready for a Store Near You?

JAMA. 2018;320(16):1627-1629. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.14124

In May, the grocery behemoth launched a pilot program with personalized medicine company Genomind. Through the partnership, pharmacists in 28 stores in Idaho, Illinois, and Pennsylvania can counsel patients about Genomind’s psychiatric pharmacogenomic test and administer it on-site.
