NBC News recently featured a story on its website and during an NBC Nightly News segment about Karen Daggett, a Mayo Clinic patient who nearly died after taking a heart medication that had built up to toxic levels in her body.

After Daggett’s traumatizing medical event, her doctor ordered the OneOme RightMed® pharmacogenomic report for her. From the RightMed report, Daggett’s doctor learned that Daggett has a genetic variation that impacts how she metabolizes the heart medication, making it dangerous for her.

When reflecting on finding the right medication with help from the RightMed report, Daggett commented: “I’m alive today because of it, and I feel great.”
