Genetic Counselor Awareness Day – Voices of our Community
Happy Genetic Counselor Awareness Day! This day is dedicated to empowering genetic counselors to help raise awareness and interest about genetic counselors in our communities and institutions and to help consumers understand the important and supportive role genetic counselors can play in their healthcare.
To celebrate, the NSGC podcast team created an episode that highlights many voices from our profession. For this episode, we asked genetic counselors to submit short, anonymous audio clips describing briefly who they are and how they identify and to elaborate on their background or to answer the question “what is your hope for the genetic counseling profession?”

I absolutely love to hear the things you all have done in genetic counseling. I am only beginning my journey to becoming a Genetic Counselor. I want to learn all I can as I go along this path.
I love seeing my personality traits also fit those like GC’s tending to be perfectionists and also ways to relax. Thank you so much for this.
I am very excited that the convention will be in Salt Lake City, Utah. An episode on how to get into this and information we can learn from there would be beneficial. Thank you.
This series is wonderful! Thank you for keeping us abreast of news and stories relevant to us genetic counselors.
