Genetic Clinic opens at Union Hospital through a partnership with Indiana State University

Indiana State University (ISU) and Union Hospital have partnered to establish a genetic counseling clinic in Terre Haute, Indiana which opened in August of this year. With the opening of the new Master’s program in Genetic Counseling at ISU, we now have a licensed and board certified genetic counselor available locally to provide risk assessment for individuals with a personal or family history of cancer as well as a personal or family history of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia or bipolar.

The clinic is located on the 2nd floor of the Hux Cancer Center (1711 N. 6 ½ Street, Terre Haute, IN 47804). Healthcare providers can refer patients for genetic counseling by calling (812) 238-7504. If a provider would like to determine if a referral is appropriate, you may contact the clinic director and genetic counselor, Megan Tucker, MS, LGC, at (812) 237-9032 or by email at


This is an opportunity to determine if there is a need in the Wabash Valley for Cancer Genetic Counseling Services. In addition, we have received a grant from the Susan G. Komen Organization to support patients with breast cancer that need assistance covering the cost of testing and/or travel to the clinic for our services.
