[Genetics 101] I Have My Patient’s Genetic Testing Results. What Do I Do Now? with Emily Dalton, MS, CGC

  • Genetic testing results are not always straightforward and patients and providers often need additional resources to help interpret the results in the context of the patient’s personal and family history.  This course will provide an overview of genetic testing results for the non-genetics provider as well as potential resources to aid in the interpretation of those results.

   

Emily earned a BA in Cell and Molecular Biology from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. She then attended the Boston University School of Medicine Genetic Counseling program, where she earned her Master’s in Genetic Counseling.  She is a current member of the BU Program Advisory Board, and has also stayed involved with the BUGC Program through course coordination, guest lecturing, and student capstone involvement.  Soon after graduating, Emily started her position as a cancer genetic counselor at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, where she had both clinical and research responsibilities.  She joined Ambry Genetics in 2013 as an Oncology Genetic Specialist, and is currently the Director of the Genetic Specialist team.
