Support the Genetic Counseling Diversity Scholarship

The Emory University School of Medicine Genetic Counseling Training Program’s mission is to provide an innovative and rigorous program of training in an inclusive and supportive environment that prepares genetic counselors to effectively, ethically and compassionately serve the needs of their patients and communities.  

To help increase diversity within our profession and defray some of the costs of graduate school, we plan to raise at least $10,000 to create the Genetic Counseling Diversity Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships to students of color who are underrepresented in the field of genetic counseling.

Alumni Quotes about the Emory Program

“Strong emphasis on all aspects of training (clinical, research, coursework), close-knit group setting with great faculty.”

“I would not be where or who I am today without my participation in Emory's program.”

“I highly doubt you will get a better education anywhere else. You are extremely busy, but you learn so much and gain so many experiences.”

The Impact of Your Gift

Increasing diversity within the profession is a major goal of the Emory Genetic Counseling Training Program as well as our professional societies such as the National Society of Genetic Counselors.  As with most health care, individuals of color are less likely to be referred for and receive genetic counseling services.  Building our workforce to reflect the make-up of our community and country is one step toward alleviating this disparity.
