Genetic Ambassador Program

The MSRGN Genetic Ambassador Program is open to all consumers of genetic services, individuals impacted by genetic conditions or family members of those who have genetic conditions, who reside in our 8 state region. We hold quarterly calls for our Genetic Ambassadors which include speakers, discussion topics, MSRGN updates, networking, and sharing of genetic resources.
