Today is #GeneticCounselor Awareness Day! Join us in celebrating the crucial role genetic counselors play in the Military Health System! Genetic counselors help service members and their families understand the genetic testing process, identify key information in the family health history, and support them through important medical decisions.

Currently, there are five genetic counselors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, who, along with other genetic counselors across the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), work in a variety of areas including clinical care, research, laboratory services, and education. Give a shout out to your genetic counselor in the comments below!

Why is it you can’t find a phone number to report issues at a MTF. This one acts different than any other we’ve ever been to and just plain ignores any patients concerns. Constantly making new rules that aren’t rules anywhere else and say their not under DHA yet. I have met with senior leadership and they promise change but it doesn’t. My next step is my Senator who is on the Armed Service Committee
