I noticed this last night on 23andMe – Genetic Counselor Awareness Day at 23andMe: https://blog.23andme.com/education/genetic-counselor-awareness-day-at-23andme/.
Genetic counselors are in demand now more than ever, and yet many people don’t understand the vital role they play in healthcare.
As part of Genetic Counselor Awareness Day, 23andMe’s Anne Greb, MS, CGC, one of 23andMe’s genetic counselors and lead on 23andMe’s Medical Education team, decided to tackle a few of the most common questions she hears from customers.
Anne, a certified genetic counselor, has more than 25 years of experience in genetic counseling program leadership, medical education, and administration. She previously directed the Joan H. Marks Graduate Program in Human Genetics at Sarah Lawrence College, where she helped increase the program’s training capacity. She also previously served as president of the American Board of Genetic Counseling.
