Physicians and Other Medical Professionals

Medical professionals, especially OB/GYNs, midwives and pediatricians, can play a vital role in promoting timely and accurate carrier screening for individuals. Now that many labs are offering expanded carrier screening that is not ethnic-specific, the JGDC urges medical professionals to recommend carrier screening for all patients of childbearing age.
