    Anne Wojcicki: How 23andMe is Disrupting the Healthcare Industry | E246

    enSeptember 25, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Empowering Individuals in HealthcareAnne Wojcicki, CEO of 23andme, emphasizes the need for healthcare to shift towards individual empowerment and efficient care delivery, influenced by her upbringing and mission to transform healthcare.

      The healthcare system needs to shift towards empowering individuals to take charge of their own health and find ways to deliver care to many people efficiently, similar to how we can now book reservations or manage various aspects of our lives online. Anne Wojcicki, the innovative biologist and entrepreneur, and CEO of 23andme, emphasizes the importance of this transformation, especially as technology advances and personal genomics companies like hers revolutionize drug discovery and healthcare. Growing up in an academic community surrounded by high achievers, Anne credits her upbringing for instilling a sense of creativity, big thinking, and frugality. Her parents' work ethic and belief in children's potential, combined with her mother's activism and self-advocacy, have influenced Anne's career trajectory and her mission to transform healthcare.

    • Finding the right mentors and following passions leads to successHaving mentors who invest in you and a mission aligned with values is crucial for success. Following passions can lead to extraordinary achievements.

      Following your passions and finding the right mentors can lead to extraordinary success. The speaker, who studied biology at Yale and worked on Wall Street for a decade, felt disillusioned with the profit-driven healthcare industry and the lack of focus on prevention. She shares how her experience of working for Investor AB and the Wallenberg family provided her with valuable mentorship and alignment with a mission, leading her to become the CEO of 23andMe. The importance of having mentors who invest in you and a mission that aligns with your values cannot be overstated. The speaker's success story, along with her two sisters, is a testament to the power of following one's passions and the impact of having the right support system.

    • Empowering Individuals in HealthcareThe healthcare system's focus on treating illness rather than preventing it leaves individuals with little control over their health. Community-driven initiatives and direct-to-consumer options offer opportunities to shift the focus towards preventative care and empower individuals to take charge of their health.

      The current healthcare system is heavily biased towards treating illness rather than preventing it, leaving individuals with little control or agency over their own health. The speaker was inspired by successful community-driven initiatives, such as the HIV community's activism, and aims to create a system where individuals are empowered and directly involved in their health and wellbeing. The healthcare system's profit-driven incentives often lead to misalignment between providers and patients, resulting in a lack of investment in preventative measures and a focus on treating sickness instead. The speaker believes that the rise of direct-to-consumer healthcare options presents an opportunity for change in this area. While there are well-meaning individuals in the healthcare industry, the system's incentives often hinder their ability to prioritize preventative care and align with the best interests of their patients.

    • Single payer system for long-term preventative care investmentSingle payer system could lead to long-term investments in preventative care, enabling personalized health management through genomic information and collaborative research using web 2.0 technology.

      The current healthcare system's fragmented payment structure often results in short-term thinking, with employers only investing in preventative care if they see a return on investment within a relatively short timeframe. In contrast, a single payer system, where the government pays for and manages healthcare risk throughout a person's entire life, could potentially lead to more long-term investments in preventative care. This idea was a turning point for the speaker, who recognized the potential of the Internet and genetics research to revolutionize healthcare. He believed that individuals could access their genomic information to understand their health risks and prevent conditions, and that a direct-to-consumer approach, leveraging web 2.0 technology, could enable large-scale, collaborative health research.

    • 23andMe's Disruption of the Healthcare Industry23andMe revolutionized access to genetic info, faced controversy, and proved individuals capable of handling sensitive data, now delivering medically meaningful info directly to consumers

      23andMe revolutionized the access to genetic information by offering direct-to-consumer genetic testing and creating a research community online. This was controversial in the early days due to the established healthcare system's control over health information and the fear of individuals handling sensitive data without clinical oversight. The company faced resistance, including a warning letter from the FDA in 2013 that halted the delivery of health reports. However, 23andMe persisted, proving through years of data that their test is safe and that individuals are capable of understanding and utilizing the information without clinical supervision. Today, 23andMe continues to deliver medically meaningful information, such as breast cancer and Alzheimer's risk, directly to consumers, bypassing the traditional healthcare system.

    • Scaling healthcare for many with one's oversightHealthcare must adapt to delivering efficient and accessible care for all through technology and scalable solutions, like online booking and investment management tools.

      In order to improve healthcare for everyone, it cannot rely on one-on-one interactions with clinicians. Instead, healthcare needs to find ways to scale and deliver care for many people with the oversight of just one. This can be seen in the transformation of industries like travel and finance, where customers can now easily book reservations or manage investments online. Similarly, healthcare needs to adapt to this model to provide efficient and accessible care for all. Additionally, tools like Yahoo Finance and Shopify can help individuals manage their investments and businesses more effectively, allowing them to focus on growth and success.

    • Genetic testing raises ethical questions13 million people have taken 23andMe tests, revealing valuable health and ancestry insights but also raising ethical concerns about privacy and family consent. Healthcare providers need training to effectively communicate results, addressing the shortage of genetic counselors and the importance of genetic integration in healthcare.

      The 23andMe genetic testing service provides individuals with valuable insights into their health and ancestry, but it also raises complex ethical questions regarding privacy and family consent. The company prioritizes consent processes and respects individuals' rights to access their DNA, but recognizes the potential impact on family members. With over 13 million people having taken the test, there is a growing need for healthcare providers to be trained in genetics to help interpret and communicate the results effectively. The shortage of genetic counselors and the importance of integrating genetics into healthcare underscore the need for a comprehensive approach to managing the implications of widespread genetic testing.

    • Bridging the knowledge gap in genomicsTo succeed in a new industry, companies must educate customers and clinicians, create educational materials, provide clinical support, and stay focused on the long-term vision.

      When entering a new industry, especially one as complex as genomics, it's crucial for companies to educate both customers and clinicians to bridge the knowledge gap. Anne Wojcicki, the CEO of 23andMe, shared her experience of the challenges they faced in the early days of the company, where people didn't understand the value of genetic testing. To address this, they created educational materials for customers and clinicians, including physician printouts, CME courses, and a physician website. However, they also recognized the need for more comprehensive clinical support and acquired Lemonade Health to provide telemedicine, access to clinicians, and a pharmacy. Wojcicki emphasized the importance of staying focused on the long-term vision and maintaining the belief that the future is on your side. She also advised entrepreneurs to embrace the weird and make it wonderful, transforming controversial ideas into accepted norms. Throughout their journey, 23andMe faced backlash but persisted, eventually becoming a well-known and accepted company in the genomics industry.

    • Staying committed to a clear vision despite skepticismBelieve in your vision, stay patient and persistent, and have data to back up your arguments. Genetic testing can connect people and contribute to scientific research.

      Having a clear vision for the future and staying true to it, even when faced with skepticism or opposition, can help shape the course of history. The speaker, who co-founded a direct-to-consumer genetic testing company, shared how they faced criticism and uncertainty when first starting out, but stayed committed to their belief that people should have access to their own medical information. They also emphasized the importance of being on the right side of history and having substantial data to support one's arguments. The process of using the company's genetic testing kit is simple: customers buy it online, spit in a tube, and send it back to have their DNA extracted and analyzed. The results provide information about ancestry, but also have the potential to connect people and contribute to scientific research. The speaker expressed excitement about the potential for genetic testing to bring people together and bridge divides, and encouraged founders to be patient and persistent in pursuing their visions.

    • Discover more than ancestry with 23andMeLearn about potential health risks and contribute to research for personalized insights and advancements in genetics.

      23andMe offers more than just ancestry information. While the ancestry composition side provides interesting surprises and connections to relatives, the platform also delves into health and research. In the health sector, customers can learn about various conditions they may be at risk for, enabling them to take proactive measures. For instance, knowing a higher risk for breast cancer can lead to early detection and preventative measures. Additionally, customers can participate in research, contributing to potential drug discoveries and advancements in genetics. Overall, 23andMe empowers individuals with valuable information, allowing them to make informed decisions about their health and family connections.

    • Valuing customers as partners in health researchValuing customers as partners in health research can lead to transformative discoveries in drug development, such as the creation of drugs that mimic beneficial gene mutations or understanding genetic variants for personalized treatments.

      People are more willing to participate in health research and share their data when they feel valued and treated as partners, rather than human subjects. This shift in perspective can lead to transformative discoveries in drug development. For instance, the identification of the PCSK9 gene mutation in a patient with extremely low LDL levels led to the creation of a drug that mimics the function of this mutation in individuals with high LDL, potentially improving cholesterol levels. Similarly, understanding the genetic variant that makes some individuals resistant to HIV can provide insights into creating clinical programs for HIV treatment. By treating customers as active participants and valuing their data, companies can harness the power of collective genetic information to make significant strides in healthcare research and drug discovery.

    • Transformative Hiring Solutions and Genetic DiscoveriesIndeed's cost-effective hiring platform delivers 4x more hires than competitors, while 23andMe's genetic discoveries expand human understanding and offer personal transformations.

      Indeed is a cost-effective and highly effective solution for small and medium-sized businesses looking to hire. With over 80% of sponsored jobs receiving perfect resume matches, Indeed delivers 4 times more hires than all other job sites combined. This makes Indeed an invaluable resource for businesses, offering a $75 sponsored job credit as an incentive for new users. Meanwhile, in the realm of genetics, 23andMe is dedicated to expanding genetic diversity, recognizing the importance of understanding human conditions across all populations. One inspiring story from the past involves an adopted woman who discovered her ancestry as part of the reindeer tribe in the Arctic Circle, leading her to quit her job and join the community, ultimately finding a sense of peace and belonging. These examples highlight the transformative potential of both Indeed's hiring platform and 23andMe's genetic discoveries.

    • Impact of 23andMe on people's lives23andMe provides genetic information leading to personal growth, understanding of heritage, and life-changing health findings. AI's potential in genetics could unlock human genome mysteries and lead to significant advancements.

      Profound impact 23andMe has on people's lives by providing meaningful genetic information and facilitating connections based on diversity. The company's commitment to considering the consequences of data releases sets it apart from other tech companies. Stories shared by customers illustrate how ancestry results can lead to personal growth and understanding of one's heritage, while health-related findings can be life-changing. The potential of AI in genetics is exciting, as it could lead to transformative breakthroughs in understanding the human genome and its relationship to our biology. The complexity of the human body and its natural processes is awe-inspiring, and AI's ability to help unlock the mysteries within could lead to significant advancements. Overall, 23andMe's mission to make genetic information accessible and meaningful to individuals is a remarkable achievement, offering insights into our heritage, health, and the connections that bind us all.

    • Revolutionizing drug discovery with AI in biology and genomicsAI in biology and genomics could lead to more efficient and effective drug discovery, resulting in cost savings and better health outcomes, while the direct-to-consumer healthcare movement and big data are transforming the industry for more accessibility and personalization, but regulatory barriers need to be addressed.

      The application of AI in biology and genomics has the potential to revolutionize the drug industry by making the drug discovery process more efficient and effective. This could lead to significant cost savings and better health outcomes for consumers. Additionally, the direct-to-consumer healthcare movement and the rise of big data are transforming the industry, making healthcare more accessible and personalized. However, there are still regulatory barriers that need to be addressed to fully realize the potential of these advancements. Overall, the future of healthcare is exciting, and the integration of AI and consumer-driven healthcare could lead to significant improvements in health and wellness.

    • The power of passion and genetics in profiting in lifeUnderstanding your genetics and being passionate about what you do can lead to fulfillment and improved health outcomes. Genetics is revealing our similarities rather than differences, connecting people and empowering consumers to advocate for personalized healthcare.

      Being passionate about what you do and understanding your genetics are key to profiting in all areas of life, according to Anne Wojcicki. Anne, the CEO of 23andMe, shared her insights from her journey with the company and the transformative impact of genetic testing on people's lives. She emphasized the importance of being passionate about the things in your life, including your work, family, and environment, to feel fulfilled. Additionally, Anne highlighted the power of understanding your genetics and pairing it with data from millions of others to uncover solutions to medical mysteries and improve health outcomes. Genetics is also revealing our similarities rather than differences, connecting people and showing that our differences are more superficial than biological. Anne's mission is to empower health care consumers to advocate for themselves and find personalized health care and drug solutions. Overall, Anne's conversation provided valuable insights into the power of passion and genetics in profiting in life.

    Dear Cancer: New Tests, New Treatments, and New Hope

    Dear Cancer: New Tests, New Treatments, and New Hope

    The presenting sponsor for today's episode is Elevation Oncology, elevating precision medicine to the forefront of every cancer treatment journey. On the show today, I welcome the esteemed Dr. Stephen Liu, Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of Thoracic Oncology, and Director of Developmental Therapeutics at Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center of Georgetown University. At a time when cancer treatment is more about your DNA and your RNA than where in your body cancer is — it's more important than ever to continue elevating the conversation about making biomarker testing a mandatory part of care. Why napalm everything if your genes make you eligible for a specific kind of therapy that's wayyyy better than proverbial napalm? NRG1 Fusion is an RNA test done on solid tumors — for the purposes of this episode Lung Cancer tumors — but this is a test that everyone with lung cancer needs to get out of the gate. You enter the "I have lung cancer store" and — BOOM — you get this test, which can make or break the trajectory of your care. From the seriousness of Phase II enrollment challenges to inane musings about Dartmouth, Boston Market, and the children's book The Three Billy Goats Gruff, strap in for a serious discussion about precision oncology and biomarker testing, especially if you or someone you know has lung cancer.

    GATTACA CHATTACA: Is Our DNA Our Destiny?

    On the show today, DNA Science Superhero Dawn Barry, President and CEO at LUNA, a public benefit corporation that is restoring power to the people by giving them back control of their genomic health information for the greater good? What a novel idea. While we would have loved to spend the entire show debating the virtues of Beyond Meat vs. Impossible Burger, we really dig into to the very nature of how, from the perspective of consumer and cultural adoption, the very conversation about our DNA — and it's role in shaping our lives — has come so far since Jurassic Park's Mr. DNA cartoon explainer dude. And yet, the foreboding words of Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm still ring true: "Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should." So strap in for an incredible chat about the uselessness of most genetic test kits, genomic bias in the workplace, predictive genetics vs. Orwellian eugenics, the mystique of the proverbial designer baby, and how DNA is not your destiny. More about Dawn on LinkedIn.

    On today's quirky show, I welcome Jen Palumbo, an epic human Energizer Bunny who takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Jen is a freelance writer, Forbes contributor, and women's health advocate, specifically for reproductive rights. In a spirited coincidence, it turns out we both went to the same college at the same time, were both Theater people, and have dozens of friends in common. We are ships in the night for sure. As fellow parents of IVF children, we bonded over the current state of the state. And as fellow Binghamton graduates, we bonded over Wegmans, being Theater nerds, and 1990s dorm life in the southern tier. Jen is a true Long Island: loud and proud.
