NSGC is pleased to announce NSGC’s new Military SIG that is officially a part of the NSGC network starting this year! The Military SIG is dedicated to uniting and addressing the needs of genetic counselors working with military families and patients. As there are special counseling and policy considerations related to genetic testing for current, former, and future United States military members and their families, this SIG provides support to genetic counselors working in the Military Health System (MHS), Veterans Affairs (VA), and those working outside of those systems who provide patient care, laboratory testing, advocacy, or engage in genomics research activities involving these populations. In addition, the Military SIG provides leadership in this area and strives to educate the public, policymakers, healthcare industry leaders, and NSGC leadership on military-specific considerations.
If you have any questions about the Military SIG, please feel free to reach out to:
