Access to Genetic Counselor Services Act: Documents to Support Advocacy
To support efforts to enact the Access to Genetic Counselor Services Act, NSGC has posted the following documents to help members become successful advocates in support of this bill. NSGC asks that members share the Patient/Family/Friends and Physician letter links, below, with their patients, family, friends, and colleagues.
NSGC will be asking members to contact their member of Congress, and these documents should be utilized. In order to be strategic, some members will be asked to contact the healthcare staff of your Representative directly, and others will be asked to email the office. The goal is to bring attention to the issue without becoming a nuisance to the congressional staff.
If you are meeting members of Congress in person, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
