Genetic Counseling in the Era of Precision Medicine
A Special Issue of the American Journal of Medical Genetics Part C: Seminars in Medical Genetics 

By enabling precise genetic diagnosis and treatment there is great potential for inexpensive, accurate, and widely accessible genomic information to transform health care and improve the general well‐being of virtually every person. To maximize this potential, approaches to genetic counseling and the role of genetic counselors will need to adapt to fit changing clinical and commercial needs worldwide. The contributors to this special issue discuss how key areas of genetic counseling need to evolve and how genetic counselors can play a role in shaping the future of precision health.
