NSGC Leadership Awards

As the leading voice, authority and advocate for the genetic counseling profession, the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) is composed of numerous networks of committees, task forces, SIGs and individual members. Through the continuous efforts of these dedicated professionals, NSGC is able to grow and improve as an organization with each passing year. The annual NSGC Leadership Awards acknowledges the actions and behaviors of exemplary genetic counselors, as well as recognizes volunteers for their contributions. 

The NSGC Awards Workgroup presents no fewer than 6 awards annually to recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of our members. Leadership Awards will be presented during a plenary session at the NSGC Annual Education Conference (AEC). 

The call for nominations closed at 11:59PM CDT on Wednesday July 20, 2016 and winners were presented at the 2016 Annual Education Conference.
