SERVICES

The services of Genetic Counseling Toolkit, LLC are directed toward reducing health disparities and enhancing cultural competence in health care. We provide consulting services and education services in the areas of cultural competence, genetic counseling, and health care in general.

The need for our services is growing. State agencies have embraced the importance of cultural and linguistic competency by passing legislation pertaining to cultural competency training for one or more segments of their state's health professionals. The following link provides a map of which states have proposed and/or passed legislation regarding cultural competency education: https://www.thinkculturalhealth.hhs.gov/Content/LegislatingCLAS.asp
