Help and Hope Happen Here is a pediatric cancer podcast hosted by Mark Levine. Each episode, Levine chats with oncologists, parents, patients, and other stakeholders in the fight against childhood cancer.
In this episode, Levine looks at how genetic testing and genetic counseling are playing an increasingly important role in pediatric cancer. My Gene Counsel’s Meagan Farmer, MS, CGC, MBA and Dr. Nathaniel Robin do an excellent job of talking about genetics and how the study of this science can affect both children and their families as they deal with the many aspects of pediatric cancer.
Farmer and Robin are co-authors of the book, Pediatric Cancer Genetics. Ideal for pediatric oncologists and all providers who care for children, this easy-to-read reference addresses the remarkable potential of genetic testing, as well as the complexities of choosing the correct test, understanding the results, and counseling the family.
