Physician survey addresses genetics services 


A genetic counseling graduate student at the University of Texas Health Science Center Houston is seeking physician input on a survey.


For her thesis research project, Callie Jenevein is participating in a larger mission to evaluate the need for genetics services in Texas, as genetic testing is rapidly becoming more affordable and accessible to patients.


The 5- to 10-minute survey is designed to assess Texas physicians' awareness and utilization of genetic services in the state. The project has UT IRB approval. All information gathered is anonymous and confidential.
