Dr. Sarah Colonna
Congratulations to Dr. Sarah Colonna, Marjan Champine, and Wendy Kohlmann for their article that will be published in ASCO daily news, Annual Meeting issue. The article focuses on strategies for providing pre-test genetic counseling so that patients will be prepared to understand the meaning of their test results. Changes in genetic testing technology are resulting in more complex types of test results, and the genetic counseling process needs to develop in order to prepare patients for the types of results that can occur. The article goes along with an educational session being presented at the ASCO meeting.
