Family Advocates

To better understand patient concerns, Tamara Bakewell our Oregon family advocates organized a Webinar on “Myths and Misconceptions of Genetic Services”. Genetic counselor Austin Bland answered several common misconceptions on genetic services that their patients mention in clinic visits, including “There’s nothing like this in my family – it can’t be genetic”, “They sell my information”, “The test is not reliable”, “This is my family’s fate”, and that “testing is too expensive”.  The WSRGN can help with webinars such as this one if you are interested.
