During the genetic counseling process, patients consider the implications that genetics may hold for themselves and for their families regarding cancer risk. It is an honor to get to create a space where patients and families in the Risk Assessment Program can share their thoughts and experiences, and where I not only provide them with important health information but also accompany them through their decision-making. My goal is to empower patients by clarifying risks to themselves and to their family members, helping them understand their options for managing these risks, and providing thoughtful, compassionate care and support throughout our time together.
