Genetic Counselor

Pediatrics (Pediatric Profile)


"Genetic counseling is important because every single individual has millions of data points inside every cell of their body, and these data points are their DNA. This data, that is often overlooked, has a huge potential to affect their health and health management. Even further, every single individual has a family that may also be impacted by this information. A genetic counselor, with training in both genetics and psychosocial counseling, is the ideal person to really delve into this data and use it to provide personalized care to the patient and their family." — Lillian Howard
