Dr. Kathleen Leppig, clinical professor (Medical Genetics), spoke last week on prenatal genetic testing to faculty, residents, and medical students at the Vietnam National Children's Hospital in Hanoi.

This visit was Dr. Leppig's 15th visit to Vietnam to work with colleagues in pediatrics to provide genetic diagnoses for children with severe congenital disorders.

Genetic diagnoses combined with PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis) enable future pregnancies to be healthy. On this trip, Dr. Leppig was accompanied by Dr. Mary-Claire King, whose laboratory carries out the genomic sequencing and analysis, and genetic counselor Darci Sternen.

Drs. Gail Jarvik, Peter Byers, and Virginia Sybert have previously traveled to Vietnam as part of this program.
