About the Genetic Counseling Foundation (GCF)
The GCF was founded by the National Society of Genetic Counselors in 2005 with the mission to serve as the catalyst for the integration of genomic information and genetic counseling services into healthcare through philanthropic support of education, research, and public policy.
The GCF is currently funding a Collaborative Genetics Services Summit to be held in mid-to-late summer 2011. Using funds raised by the GCF, the NSGC will bring together genetics professionals, nurses, physician assistants, primary care and specialty physicians, pharmacists, industry representatives, advocates, and other relevant stakeholders to develop competency and evidence-based models for integrating genetics and genomics into health care.
The GCF has been placed in a dormant state in 2011 and beyond and active fundraising has stopped. However, the Audrey Heimler Special Project Award and George Tiller Memorial Fund remain under the GCF, so donors who wish to continue making tax-deductible donations can do so.
