Genetic Counselor Awareness Day

Genetic Counselor Awareness Day

Genetic Counselor Awareness Day is Thursday, November 9. Genetic counselors play an important role in people’s healthcare – from helping them better understand genetic testing to identifying keys to their family health history.

In honor of Genetic Counselor Awareness Day, learn more about the medical professionals who see patients, work in labs and make discoveries to help individuals and families better understand how their genetics affect their health.

The future of healthcare is personalized, and genetic counselors are at the forefront of this evolution.
