Thank you

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.
