2020 Take A Walk In Our Genes

The Genetic Services Department at Hackensack University Medical Center will host its fourth annual Fun Walk on June 7, 2020 at Overpeck Park in Ridgefield Park, NJ. Thanks to all of our generous supporters from last year, we were able to provide aide to 13 families under our care. The event, Take a Walk in Our Genes, will benefit the patients and families under the care of the Center for Genetic and Genomic Medicine and allow us to provide resources for them in situations where there are financial/insurance limitations. The need for support continues to be ongoing as we are helping some patients with critical therapies.
