Meagan Smith, Genetics Counselor from the UPMC Pinnacle Cancer Institute

A fascinating interview and education about genetics and genetic testing and knowing your risks for cancer.  Meagan explains what her job as "genetics counselor" entails.  Helping you understand about the test, why you should consider it, and what to understand when you get the results.

Meagan has a fabulous intellect and ability to explain this complicated field of study.   Her explanation of when i asked her, "what is cancer" is the best I've heard because i could understand it.  You see, Meagan's husband is a truck driver and she put it in terms he and a lot of us can understand, using the analogy of automotive terms.   

The best part is, this genetics testing, the genetics counseling and all the many services offered at the UPMC Pinnacle Cancer Institute is great news for us here in Central PA.  Especially those dealing with and fighting cancer.   Tough on cancer.  Strong for you.
