The opportunity to work as a genetic counselor with the MyCode Community Health initiative sparked my interest in Geisinger. I am involved in returning medically actionable genetic results to our patient-participants in a clinical interaction that is similar to – but distinct from – the traditional genetic counseling session. Central PA has been a wonderful place for my family with great schools and easy access to outdoor activities with the kids. At Geisinger, genetic counseling skills are applied to new challenges with the implementation of the MyCode return-of-results program. I am deeply involved in helping to build the infrastructure for a precision health program that will be returning BRCA, Lynch syndrome, and Familial Hypercholesterolemia results to thousands of people in our community. Geisinger’s MyCode project is at the leading edge of genetics in medicine – I hope you’ll consider joining our team.
