In February 2017, Tammy Kosbab, Founder of EDS Wisconsin spoke with Christina at PreventionGenetics about the number of individuals who needed to genetic testing — many of whom have been put on a 2-4 year waiting list to see a genetic specialist. Christina, who had previously worked in a genetics department, understood how challenging this problem is for those who are suffering. Subsequently, she contacted Advanced Tele Genetic Counseling (ATGC) and within two days – they had a viable resolution!
Since then, both organizations have collaboratively worked out a contract that will allow remote genetic counseling for individuals in several states. In addition, as of June of this year, Dr. Dong has been able to put together a 45-panel genetic test for Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and other heritable connective tissue disorders, where previously only a 28-gene panel was available!
