Alpha-1 Genetic Counseling Program
Many people find it helpful to talk to a nurse who understands genetics and can provide counseling services. The Alpha-1 Foundation offers free, confidential genetic counseling services by phone to people with Alpha-1, family members of people with Alpha-1, and healthcare providers. These services are provided by the University of Florida.
Our Genetic Counseling Services can provide:
- Information about testing, resources, prevention, and disease management
- Education about how Alpha-1 can be passed from parent to child
- Counseling to support families diagnosed with Alpha-1 and therapy referrals
- A review of available testing options for undiagnosed family members
