Genetic Counselors at HudsonAlpha

Genetic counseling is a small but growing field, with approximately 20 genetic counselors currently practicing throughout the state of Alabama, and HudsonAlpha is home to three.

Genetic counselors provide a critical service to individuals and families undergoing genetic testing by investigating family history and interpreting information gathered from both risk assessments and the genetic testing process itself. Genetic counseling has been recently identified as one of the top biotech careers in high demand, and for good reason. As more and more genetic data becomes available, the need also grows for genetic counselors to help physicians and the public understand what this data means to their lives.
