I am a previous president of the National
Society of Genetic Counselors, and saw patients for prenatal
diagnosis/reproductive genetic counseling during the early days of my career. I
have worked in Public Health Genomics, Cancer Genetics, Ovarian Cancer and
Cancer Survivorship in various public health settings for the last 25 years.
Since retiring from the NYSDOH, I have provided consultative services to
various agencies and organizations. For the Office of Public Health Genomics at
the CDC I worked on implementing three “Tier I applications” via state health
departments and other means. These applications are available but significantly
under-recognized and under-utilized by individuals, families and health care
providers. The applications can reduce morbidity and mortality via “cascade
testing” of first, second and third degree relatives of individuals identified
with Hereditary Breast/Ovarian Cancer Syndrome, Lynch Syndrome and Familial
Hypercholesterolemia. I worked with the Familial Hypercholesterolemia
Foundation on a “Call to Action”, a report to the National Organization for
Rare Diseases, and on the Proceedings of the First Annual Familial
Hypercholesterolemia Foundation Summit, as well as other projects. I have
functioned as a grant-writer with To Life!, on grants on educating Ashkenazi
Jews about Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome and on physical
activity in breast cancer survivors. I am working on an ongoing basis with the
Connecticut Department of Public Health Genomics Office on a CDC-funded project
educating primary care providers about Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer
risk assessment, management and cascade screening.
