Genetic Counselor Awareness Day
November 8th is Genetic Counselor Awareness Day!
The Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research would like to recognize Isha Kalia, MS, MPH, CGC for her research contributions to the Precision Medicine for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders Biorepository and clinical contributions to cardiovascular genetic and familial disorders.
Genetic counselors have unique, specialized skills and knowledge to help our patients, providers, and staff members understand genetic testing decisions, results, and implications. Many of the 30+ genetic counselors at CUIMC and NYP are also actively involved in research, teaching medical students, residents and fellows, and increasing scholarship on campus overall.
Please join us in honoring the contributions these exemplary genetic counselors make to our institute!
