She was recognized for achievements in her professional education as the 2018 recipient of the University of South Carolina S. Robert Young Outstanding Genetic Counselor Award.
    Ms. Desrosiers is a genetic counselor for the Cancer Genetics Clinic at Texas Children's Hospital. Through her role in this clinic, she educates and supports families during genetic evaluation for a wide range of childhood cancer predisposition syndromes.
    In addition to her clinical role, Ms. Desrosiers is a member of the KidsCanSeq research study team. KidsCanSeq is a clinical trial which will help to promote access and generate best practices for implementing genomic testing for the diverse families impacted by childhood cancers. As a genetic counselor for the study, Ms. Desrosiers helps medical providers and families to understand and use health information gained from genomic testing through written materials and by providing traditional genetic counseling services.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
