The Division of Genetic Counseling specializes in providing information and
support to individuals who may be considering genetic screening or testing, or
may be at an increased risk for certain genetic conditions based on personal or
family health histories.
UTHealth Genetic Counselors are specially trained, board-certified professionals
who help women understand their testing options. A discussion with a genetic
counselor can give women the knowledge they need to make the best testing and
screening choices for themselves. Genetic counselors also provide resources and
support to families throughout this process.
