Megan Myers, M.S.

Genetic counselor

Megan Myers is a genetic counselor in the Gastrointestinal Cancer Prevention Clinic, a part of the Cancer Risk Program at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. Myers identifies families who are at high risk for hereditary cancer syndromes and provides recommendations to prevent and detect cancer at an early stage, and recommendations for screening and surgeries to prevent or detect cancers that have genetic links. She also provides support to families undergoing genetic risk assessments.

Myers is involved in research on families who have Lynch syndrome and social media tools that help families better communicate and share their genetic information with other at-risk family members. She earned a bachelor's of science degree in genetics at the University of California, Davis in 2007 and a master's of science in genetic counseling at California State University, Stanislaus in 2011. Before joining the staff of Cancer Risk Program in 2007, she was a volunteer for two years.
