SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Pathway Genomics Corporation, a genetic testing laboratory, now offers a health coaching service through a national non-profit organization. Provided by Healthy Adventures Foundation, the health coaching service is currently available as an addition to Pathway Genomics premier genetic testing service, Pathway Fit, which tests for food metabolism and exercise response and is available through physicians.
