Landmark study offers new information about breast cancer genes

ere are approximately 28 institutions providing graduate training in genetic counseling and over 1,000 professionals in the field, about half of who are graduates of the Sarah Lawrence program.

Jessica B. Mandell, genetic counselor and research coordinator, provided genetic counseling for the study participants along with over 30 genetic counselors from collaborating medical centers and 100 students in the Sarah Lawrence graduate program. "With the growth of knowledge about human genetics and expanded opportunities for genetic testing," said Ms. Mandell, "the need and demand for trained genetic counselors has grown exponentially. Genetic counselors possess a unique ability to assist in disease diagnosis, prevention and management, and provide psychosocial and ethical guidance to help patients make informed, autonomous health care and reproductive decisions."
