Genetics Clinical Services

Louisiana genetics clinics provide medical services such as genetic testing, counseling, education, treatment, and referral to individuals and families who have or are at risk for genetic disorders.

The Louisiana Genetic Diseases Program was established in 1981 through a federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The purpose of the program continues to be the operation of a comprehensive newborn heel stick screening program meeting national standards as well as to ensure access to genetic evaluation and counseling to residents in all areas of Louisiana.

Contact your regional Office of Public Health to access genetics testing facilities in your area.
