Essentia Health Welcomes Certified Genetic Counselor

Cathy McCann, Genetic Counselor

Certified Genetic Counselor Cathleen McCann has joined Essentia Health – South University Clinic, Fargo.

McCann has been a board certified genetic counselor since 1998 and has been dedicated to teaching, research, and advancement of genetic counseling for over twenty years. “I’ve always been fascinated by genetics, and can remember as a young girl, my dad telling me about the discovery of DNA,” she explains.

Much of McCann’s practice has involved serving patients with a personal or family history of cancer. However, her practice also involves helping couples with high risk pregnancies, and families who have a history of birth defects or genetic conditions.
