At Kensington Senior Living, Our Promise is to love and care for your family as we do our own. And that includes you. To that end, we have built strong relationships with expert professionals who keep us current with the latest advances in care, management and treatment of conditions that affect seniors and their families.

We are thrilled to partner with Dr. Omar Abdul-Rahman, Clinical Geneticist with Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for this educational webinar on the fascinating realm of genetics and its profound impact on family health. With a deep passion for advancing genetic understanding, Dr. Abdul-Rahman leads an engaging discussion on how genetic testing can provide families with insights into their genetic makeup, potential health risks, and opportunities for proactive management. From uncovering predispositions and inherited conditions to embracing tailored wellness strategies, participants will gain understanding of the significance of genetic testing in family health.

Clinical Geneticist Omar Abdul-Rahman, MD, completed his medical school and pediatrics residency at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. Subsequently, he trained in clinical genetics at Stanford University. Dr. Abdul-Rahman returned to Mississippi to begin his academic career and spent 12 years serving in various roles including division chief of medical genetics and interim chair of the department of pediatrics. He then moved to Omaha, Nebraska to serve for five years as the director of the department of genetic medicine at the Munroe-Meyer Institute, part of the University of Nebraska Medical Center. As a person who enjoys developing new collaborations and building programs, he was drawn to the opportunity at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to expand the reach of genetics across the health system. Dr. Abdul-Rahman sees a broad range of patients, including prenatal, pediatric, and adult patients with various genetic conditions.
