Genetic Counselor Awareness Day is Nov. 8, 2018. The future of healthcare is personalized, and genetic counselors play a crucial role. Genetic counselors help patients identify concerns in personal and family history, better understand genetic testing, and support patients as they use this information to make important medical decisions.
With roles in clinics, labs, hospitals and research, genetic counselors further our understanding of genetics through testing and research advancements.
With comprehensive training in both medical genetics and counseling, genetic counselors are at the forefront of shaping the future of medicine and supporting people in their personal health journey.
