The NF Families and Community Committee invite you to join them for a stress management workshop with Mary-Frances Garber, MS, CGC. Come and learn, laugh and discuss ways to de-stress or self-care. Everyone needs a reminder on how to do this. Everyone needs to self-care in this crazy, busy world and living with a genetic condition that presents challenges can make the need to pause and say “I’m OK” or “I need some help”, all the more important.
This workshop is free and open to adults with neurofibromatosis.
Mary-Frances Garber is a board-certified, licensed genetic counselor who earned her B.S. in Molecular Genetics from the University of Rochester and her M.S. in Human Genetics from Sarah Lawrence College. Having worked for 11 years in a high-risk obstetrical setting in the Antenatal Diagnostic Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, she gained extensive counseling experience. She has worked with many families having various genetic, chromosomal or developmental conditions. She is now in private practice focusing on patients with concerns surrounding infertility, compromised pregnancy outcomes, a recent diagnosis of a birth defect or genetic condition, and those in the process of obtaining a diagnosis for their child. In addition to her private practice, Mary-Frances works per diem in The Maternal and Fetal Medicine unit at Newton Wellesley Hospital.
