Genetic conditions and complex health problems can affect any family. Genetic counselors are key for understanding the ever increasing complexity of genetic medicine.
Our genetic counselors have been serving families in the Columbia area for more than
three decades. Our Master of Science Genetic Counseling education program has produced more
than 200 genetic counselors since 1985. While we continue to serve more than 2,000
families each year from our community, our graduates in turn serve an exponential
number of families in South Carolina, the Southeast and nation.
A Gift for the Future
The Endowment, established in perpetuity, allows Friends of the Genetic Counseling Program to make tax-deductible contributions that foster genetic counselor education. An endowment contribution ensures your support is felt long into the future. Only the interest income is used to support student needs, incorporate new genetic and genomic discoveries into the curriculum, and provide genetic counseling and education in our community and beyond.
