Nurse Educator and Genetic Counselor
Marlene Baruch, RN, MSN
High Point, NC
While cancers are random in their attacks, the tendency to develop certain cancers runs in families. Marlene Baruch is a nurse educator for the Comprehensive Women’s Center and stays on top of the latest information about genetic testing and how these results can help you and your family in your battle against this disease. Through her years of working with cancer patients, she has informally asked cancer survivors to help new patients through the journey. She is excited that GPS now provides a formal way to train and assign mentors to newly diagnosed cancer patients.
