    NSGC Leadership Awards

    As the leading voice, authority and advocate for the genetic counseling profession, the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) is composed of numerous networks of committees, task forces, SIGs and individual members. Through the continuous efforts of these dedicated professionals, NSGC is able to grow and improve as an organization with each passing year. The annual NSGC Leadership Awards acknowledges the actions and behaviors of exemplary genetic counselors, as well as recognizes volunteers for their contributions. Winners are presented at the NSGC Annual Education Conference (AEC) each year.
