Philosophy of Care
Vivien Triano recognizes that genetic and genomic information is complex and the evaluation process can be daunting.
Her role is to help individuals and their families understand and evaluate their options and to facilitate individualized decisions based on their unique circumstances.
She strives to provide her patients with the support and resources they need to navigate the rapidly changing world of genomic medicine.
Vivien Triano is a licensed and board certified genetic counselor in the Division of Genomic Medicine. She works with pediatric and adult patients and their families who are at risk for or have a personal or family history of genetic or genomic disease.
She is currently building the Division's TeleGenomics program, aimed at providing genetic and genomic services through telemedicine technology to patients and their families who reside in locations where access to a clinical geneticist or genetic counselor is limited or unavailable.
She has an interest in the genetic and genomic factors contributing to autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
