Guest Blogger Series: Diverse GC Roles

We’re trying something new at theDNAexchange this week. In response to the feedback that we’ve received about people’s interest in learning more about job opportunities outside of the traditional genetic counselling route, we’ve asked a handful of friends and acquaintances currently working in unique areas to share their experience as a genetic counsellor in a diverse role.

We are grateful to have a great group of individuals who have agreed to participate in this series, and we can’t wait to share their stories with you. This is a project I have personally wanted to do for quite some time, and I am thrilled that it has finally come together. Each day this week, 1 or 2 new guest posts will be published, so please check back often. We hope people out there enjoy this blog-experiment. Hopefully we can learn from one another, and maybe find some inspiration to try something new.  Stay tuned! The first guest post will be coming up this afternoon!
