• Genetic Counseling Students Prepare to Personalize Medicine

    Meron Azage and Katie Armstrong came to Cincinnati to be part of one of the few genetic counseling graduate programs in the country. The two-year master's program is a partnership between Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati and accepts 12 students a year. Azage and Armstrong, part of the class of 2012, describe themselves as "medical translators" who have a background in psychology and science and will be able to help families understand genetic disorders. That kind of personalized touch, they say, is the future of medicine.
