Genetic Counselor - Cancer Center


Whether an individual faces a possible cancer diagnosis, or has been diagnosed with cancer, it is very stressful. Patients understandably have questions and concerns about the disease.  The role of the Genetic Counselor is to educate patients about their chance of developing cancers, help them obtain personal meaning from cancer genetic information, and empower them to make educated, informed decisions about genetic testing, cancer screening, and cancer prevention. 

The Genetic Counselor also helps to support the clinical team’s research protocols related to high-risk cancer patients.  You will be the calm and reassuring presence patients need offering pre and post test counseling necessary to collect relevant information needed to assess a patient’s personal and family medical history.   As a member of our cancer center team, you'll discover what sets us apart - passion for the individuals and families in our care.
