Genetics is a broad and complex subject. Some interpreters may have received classes on genetics as part of high school or college biology, while others may know nothing about genetics at all. This introductory class is designed to give a basic overview of the key concepts in genetics in general, and cancer genetics specifically. The training was designed by Cynthia E. Roat, MPH; Galen Joseph, PhD; Claudia Guerra, MSW; Janice Cheng, PhD; Robin Lee, LCGC; and Karlena Lara-Otero, PhD; with funding from The University of California, San Francisco, Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Give Breast Cancer the Boot.
