Lindsey Mette holds a Master of Science degree in Genetic Counseling from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and a Master of Science in Public Health from Charité Universitätsmedizin.
As a genetic counselor, Lindsey works with individuals with a personal and/or family history of cancer to provide genetic risk assessment and identification of hereditary cancer syndromes, coordinate genetic testing, and educate the patient regarding future cancer risks and medical management options. In addition, she provides supportive psychosocial counseling for individuals and family members with hereditary cancer syndromes.
Lindsey is currently working with the GRACIAS Texas (Genetic Risk Assessment for Cancer In All South Texas) program to identify at-risk individuals in Bexar, Hidalgo, Cameron, and Webb counties. GRACIAS Texas provides genetic risk assessment, counseling, testing, and screening for both insured and uninsured individuals free of charge. This project is made possible by funding from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).
