Marrying Family History and Medicine
Genetic counseling helps you understand the impact of inherited diseases on your body, mind and family.
Genetic counselors are embedded in primary care and a variety of specialty clinics throughout all regions of Sanford Health. They are trained in both genetics and counseling.
As part of your care team, genetic counselors work alongside your provider to interpret your family history. This history helps to determine your risk of having a disease occur or return - and the risk of passing a genetic disorder on to your children.
Our genetic counselors will walk you through:
- Genetic testing
- Inherited diseases
- Disease management recommendations
- Disease prevention
- Genetics research
Visit a genetic counselor to make informed health choices.
