The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) has launched the second year of its NSGC Digital Ambassador Program. This program highlights advocates and providers in the genetics field who raise awareness about the role of genetic counseling and promote their shared interest across their networks. The group consists of 15 influencers, including our President/CEO, Ellen Matloff, who all have unique perspectives and knowledge in genetics and genetic counseling.
The second annual #NSGCGenePool tweetchat was held recently and explored the importance of genetic counselors in the genetic testing process, our strong partnership with the advocacy community, and our passion that drives raising awareness for these topics.
Check out the highlights of our conversation below!
