The Connecticut Genetic Counselors' Association is now accepting members
Thank you for visiting Connecticut’s first statewide association for genetics professionals. The Connecticut Genetic Counselors’ Association (CTGCA) was founded to provide peer support and facilitate communication among CT genetic counselors to enhance professional growth and visibility in our state. We aim to foster collaboration in order to improve genetic counseling services as part of overall genetic health care in CT. We also seek to champion clinical, research, policy, advocacy, and educational efforts related to genetic counseling services in CT. If you are a genetics professional, we hope that you will join the CTGCA and create a network of support and resources for the Connecticut community.
