Laboratory/Industry SIG

Mission

The mission of the Laboratory/Industry SIG is to promote communication and relationships among genetic counselors whose work or interests include the development, support, review or offering of genetic testing products and services, which can include the delivery of genetic counseling services. In addition, members provide leadership and expertise in genetic testing related to innovation, technology, test utilization management, public policy, best practice development, business affairs, original and peer-reviewed research, and education.

ISIG is a gathering place for idea-sharing, networking, ongoing education, skill development, and the exchange of information, tools, and resources. The Laboratory/Industry SIG communicates actively via an email listserv, conference calls, webinars and in-person at the NSGC Annual Conference. There are numerous opportunities for genetic counselors within ISIG including special projects, outreach, and leadership.
