Questions & Experts: A Genetic Counsellor Answers your Questions about Genetic Testing

Oftentimes, breast cancer patients have questions and concerns about their diagnosis and their health that they are unable to get the answers to. Whether it's because of limited time with their primary healthcare provider or because they don't have access to a specialist, many times, their questions go unanswered. To address this, Canadian Breast Cancer Network has put together a Q&E: Questions and Experts series in hopes that patients are able to ask our hosted experts any questions that they may not otherwise be able to ask.

In this session, participants asked Rachel Mador-House questions about genetics and genetic testing. Rachel Mador-House is a board-certified Genetic Counsellor with a Master’s of Science in Genetic Counselling from California State University and a Master’s of Science in Molecular Genetics from the University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children.
