Empowering People: Genetic Counselling in Focus

What is genetic counselling, what does a genetic counsellor do, and who gets to see one?

“The profession of genetic counseling started in the United States with the advent of the first master's level training program at Sarah Lawrence College in New York in 1969. Since then, the profession has expanded globally, and in early 2018 we estimate there are nearly 7,000 genetic counselors in over 28 countries” Source.
