Leslie Ross Presents: Genetic Counseling, DNA, and Cancer

In this program, you will learn about genetic counseling as a profession. Specifically, the speaker will discuss genetic counseling and genetic testing in individuals with cancer or with a family history of cancer. You will learn about the technology used to do genetic testing in a clinical setting and how that technology compares to the technology used for direct-to-consumer genetic testing like 23andMe and Ancestry.com. You will also learn about the limitations of genetic testing for ancestry or health information through direct-to-consumer genetic testing. Finally, you will better understand when the results of a direct-to-consumer test indicate a need for genetic counseling and confirmation genetic testing.
