A Few of My Favorite Things: Men Wearing Pink and Thinking about Genetic Testing

October 24, 2018

by Catherine Fine, MS, Certified Genetic Counselor and Clinical Cancer Service Lead  

Like the song suggests, many people consider “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” a few of their favorite things. For me, I have some year-round favorites (my family, friends and 2-year-old golden retriever, Butterbear), but many of my favorite things are almost always associated with October: the autumn season, changing leaves, pumpkin-everything, cool crisp weather, a favorite sweatshirt, football games and of course, men wearing pink.

Ovarian Cancer - What Women (and Men) Need to Know

September 7, 2018

by Erynn Gordon, MS, LCGC, Vice President of Clinical Operations at Genome Medical

Since I’m a genetic counselor, lots of people ask me random questions about genetics and genealogy. For instance, I recently had a long conversation about the elusive concept of a relative “once removed.” These conversations are fun—after all, I’m in this profession because I love talking genetics.

But then there are the other conversations, the ones that sit with you for months or years because you hope the person you were speaking to (usually in an informal setting) really heard you and will seek the care you suggested.
