About Color

Color’s mission is to help people lead the healthiest lives that science and medicine can offer. We launched in April 2015 with a simple, affordable genetic test to help people understand their risk for hereditary cancer. In 2017, we added coverage for hereditary heart conditions. Between them, cancer and heart disease constitute the two biggest causes of death worldwide. In September 2018, we introduced a new health area, medication response, to help people understand how their genes may influence response to certain medications.
