Abstract
  • Genetic counseling, a healthcare profession centered on communicating genetic information to patients and helping them understand it, has been rapidly evolving with the development of genetic sequencing and editing technology over the past decades. Consequently, future and current genetic counselors must address societal and ethical implications, as well as historical applications, of these technologies. In addition to discussing some of these issues, including historic racial discrimination and the potential for disability discrimination, this thesis serves as a practical guide for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in genetic counseling.
  • Key Words: Genetic counseling, genetic technology, genetic screening, eugenics, graduate school
