Story

Ferre Genetics is raising money to help families in Upstate New York gain better access to medical genetics services.

Ferre Genetics is a 501(c)3 organization. As an independent, community-based genetic counseling program, we rely on support from grants and donors like you. All donations are fully tax deductible.


As a nonprofit organization, we provide genetic counseling and testing services, resources, and research for families that would otherwise not be able to access care. 

We are on a mission to help families throughout New York State understand how family and medical history can determine their risk for a disease. We help patients understand how family history can play a role in developing hereditary cancers, disorders, and/or conditions, and how those who are just building their family might benefit from a genetic counseling appointment.

We are committed to assuring that families have the most current information and access to new genetic testing options. Additionally, we are continuing our services in prenatal/preconception genetic counseling. 

We offer a sliding-scale payment system that ensures all have access to genetics services, regardless of their income or insurance. Patients typically wait up to one year to have genetic counseling at major medical facilities, often requiring long-distance travel. 

At Ferre Genetics, you will have an appointment within 4-6 weeks or less…right in your community! 

We are here to help you and your family members navigate your genetics journey every step of the way by providing answers and valuable information throughout your lifespan.

We can’t reach these goals without your support!

About Ferre Genetics

Our community-based genetics service assures access to genetic counseling for patients and their medical providers in the communities where they live and work, and promotes public awareness of genetics in everyday life. Based in Binghamton, New York, Ferre Genetics was established in 1974 by our late Medical Director, Dr. Murray Nusbaum. 

As a non-profit organization, we are dedicated to the education of professionals and consumers on issues of infertility, family building, and genetic risk. Unlike most genetics programs, we are not affiliated with a university or medical center. Rather, we work closely with a dedicated Board of Directors, which includes a Medical Director. 

We currently serve 30 counties throughout Upstate New York and provide genetic counseling and testing services, resources, and research for families that would otherwise not be able to access care. We have an internal staff of three Certified Genetic Counselors that offer both in-person and telehealth appointments. With your support, we will hire additional Genetic Counselors to our team. From understanding how family history can play a role in developing hereditary cancers or heart disorders, to providing resources pre and post-testing, we help our clients throughout their lifelong genetics journey.
