Since 2011, the Michigan Association of Genetic Counselors has supported local genetic counselors and genetic counseling students by providing funding for projects that further the Mission and Vision of the MAGC.
LEND fellows are graduate or postgraduate students, or community members selected for their outstanding skills and commitment to improving the quality of life for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and their families.
