About Allie

Allie Janson Hazell has always been fascinated by the subtle and intricate relationship between medical science, the individual and society. After graduating with a degree in Biology and Health Studies (including a defining semester abroad in Kenya) from Queen’s University, she went on to complete a Master’s of Science in Human Genetics as well as a certificate in Public Health Genetics/Genomics, at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. She is certified by the American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) and the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors (CAGC).

Allie currently works in Toronto at Medcan, a preventative health clinic offering personal genome testing. Previously she worked at the Adult Genetics clinic at University Health Network/Mount Sinai Hospital.  Allie was among the first genetic counsellors to champion a role for social media within the profession, having co-founded The DNA Exchange – the Genetic Counselling community’s leading weblog – where she remains a principal contributor. She currently sits on the board of the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors (CAGC).

    Hi Allie,

    I stumbled upon your website when I was looking for images of pectus carinatum for my presentation on Marfan Syndrome. I’m a genetic counseling student at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan but I’m originally from Toronto.

    Your name doesn’t sound familiar, so I was wondering where you’re currently working. I will be doing a summer internship at SickKids this July and August to start getting an idea of what kind of genetic counseling network exists back home.

    Any insights you might have are greatly appreciated.
