GeneFo was founded by Dr. Yael Wilnai – a Stanford graduate and practicing medical geneticist.
Dr. Wilnai has extensive experience in helping patients navigate the different aspects of their condition. On July 21, 2015, she is kicking off series of free educational webinars to share her knowledge, and will also address the growing interest in genetic research with relation to Multiple Sclerosis. The first webinar will offer tips on how to get the most out of your physician/geneticist visits. The webinar will include a Q&A session and best practices.

GeneFo – Three core beliefs:

– Get real-time feedback and information both from top-notch genetic experts and patients/caregivers like you

In medicine, you need to specialize in order to offer the most relevant, reliable and professional input. That is why GeneFo makes sure that in addition to core patient-centered knowledge, they provide medical feedback by top-notch genetic experts with the most up-to-date medical information and resources, all presented in a clear and comprehensive manner.

– Consolidate all aspects of condition management in one place

While the internet is filled with many great resources, they are not usually accessible in one convenient place. Dr.Wilnai witnessed the frustration of patients and caregivers trying to access accumulated medical information from different sources – navigating several different websites were a real pain point. That is why GeneFo is designed to consolidate all aspects of condition management: real-time patient-driven knowledge, expert medical feedback and up-to-date medical content.

– The knowledge shared on GeneFo is used for the common good

Healthcare professionals, looking for opportunities to share their experience and better access to patients, partake in the community in order to advance research for the benefit of patients around the globe.
