The TSGC Genetic Services Committee is responsible for issues pertaining to the
provision of genetic services within the state of Texas. Relevant data such as birth
defect rates, number and location of practicing genetic counselors and geneticists
etc… is continuously collected and organized for use in future assessment projects.
All genetic counselors in the state of Texas will be asked on an annual basis to
provide information regarding the number and type of patients seen for creation
of a database used to track the genetic counseling services provided in the state
year to year. All of this information is collected and managed for the purpose of
assessing the need for, utilization of, and accessibility to genetic services within
the state of Texas.
