Happy GC Awareness Day to our colleagues, students, and alumni!

“To me, being a genetic counselor means training the next generation of genetic service providers to be patient-centric, compassionate, strategic, and present. As co-director of the MS Program in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling at Stanford, I have a front row seat to the innovative and principled ideas that come from fresh voices and teams working together. Every September, when we welcome a new cohort of students, I’m overwhelmed with hope and possibility that our profession is only getting wiser and stronger with each graduating class. In their hands, and with humility and accountability, I have no doubt that we will break down barriers, increase access to care, and make genetic information more relevant and useful to individuals and families from all walks of life.” – MaryAnn Campion, EdD, MS, CGC #IAmAGeneticCounselor
