Thanks to Teal It Up sponsorships, 24 students were able to attend the first Arizona Genetic Alliance Annual Education Conference. The event was held in Phoenix on Friday, September 30, 2022. The Teal It Up Ovarian Cancer Foundation has been a sponsor of the AGA since it was founded in 2020. The first meeting was supposed to have taken place right as Covid started, however, so the launch was delayed until 2022.
The mission of the Arizona Genetics Alliance is to promote the professional development of genetic counselors who work in the state of Arizona. Through collaborations and activities within the local community and with other genetics, health care professionals and members of the broader community, AGA strives to enhance knowledge in the field of genetic counseling services.
Future Annual Education Conferences will provide a day for Arizonan genetics professionals to come together for education and networking. Attendees can expect to gain knowledge on topics related to genetic counseling in Arizona. Experts in the field will speak on recent updates in each genetic counseling specialty, as well as practice-related issues.
