The GCPG also provides genetic counseling resources to ASRM, serves as a liaison to the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC), generates presentation tracks on genetic counseling topics at the ASRM Scientific Congress & Expo, and encourages membership and participation of genetic counselors within ASRM.
