The Genetic Counseling Scientific Interest Group (GC SIG) is open to anyone who provides genetic counseling at a government or military institution in the local community. The SIG will provide a forum for counselors to share practice and research ideas, participate in continuing education, and form collaborations with one another. The group can also serve as a resource for the broader NIH community by delivering lectures or collaborating on the development of research protocols. The SIG will meet several times a year for seminars, journal clubs, guest lectures, and group discussions. For more information or to join the GC SIG LISTSERV, contact Katie Lewis (NHGRI; lewiskatie@mail.nih.gov).
