Genetic Counselor Awareness Day 2020
Thursday, November 12, 2020
12:00am - 11:30pm
Genetic Counselors are specialized health professionals with training in medical genetics and counseling. With this expertise, genetic counselors help patients understand their risk for genetic conditions, establish a personalized plan for genetic testing, and provide support during decision making and adjustment to the genetic information learned through this process. As genetic testing is increasingly incorporated into a variety of medical specialties, genetic counselors are there as part of the healthcare team to support physicians and patients. In honor of GC Awareness Day, we say “THANK YOU” to the genetic counselors at Michigan Medicine for all that you do!
