Sara Blankenship, MS
I am a genetic counselor in the Pediatric/General Genetics clinic. I earned my Master of Science in Genetic Counseling from the University of Pittsburgh. Working in the clinic has given me the opportunity to aid patients and families with a variety of conditions in navigating the ever-changing landscape of genetics. Another faucet of my job is working with the Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis clinic at Geisinger. I counsel families who have had abnormal or positive newborn screens, facilitate testing, work closely with the team to interpret results, and provide support in the form of education and research updates to families with cystic fibrosis. It is very rewarding to be involved with this clinic and I enjoy getting to know our patients and families.
