This is a piece was created for NPR and art directed by Meredith Rizzo.

The story is about whether or not parents should have their DNA tested to see if the combination of their genes could lead to medical issues for their child.

It's an interesting concept but thinking about it for a while, somewhat scary to me. What does a person do with this sort of knowledge? How does a parent treat a child knowing that in 20 years, they may have a heart condition? There are many moral and human questions that get opened up. What could be the next step? Altering your genes to create better children?

Here's a link to the story.
