Recognition & Awards

  • The Outstanding Volunteer Award, National Society of Genetic Counselors, (2014)
    The Outstanding Volunteer Award is presented to Kami Wolfe Schneider, MS, CGC in recognition of outstanding achievement and leadership on behalf of the National Society of Genetic Counselors. Each year, only 6 leadership awards are presented to genetic counselors by the National Society of Genetic Counselors.
Research interests for Patients:
I am doing research that will help us understand why cancer happens more commonly in some families than in others, which cancer types are associated with a hereditary risk for cancer, how emotional, social, and ethical factors influence individuals and their family members in regards to genetic testing for cancer risk during childhood, and what screening and prevention strategies are the most effective for detecting early, or preventing, future cancers, tumors, or blood disorders that individuals and/or their family members may develop.
