To mark the annual Genetic Counselor Awareness Day, a day for celebrating and raising awareness of the important role genetic counselors play in the healthcare community, we invite you to join a Q&A session with genetic counselors from our team.
At Blueprint Genetics, there are a number of talented genetic counselors providing combined expertise in genetics and patient care. During the Q&A, our team members can answer any questions you may have about the industry and different opportunities available for genetic counselors. They will also share their own experiences and insights working in this field.
