In the Base Pair series, we get a chance to learn about genetics professionals (genetic counselors and geneticists) who have partnered up to pursue a project together. I ask them to share a bit of the back-story, how they came to be partnered with their buddy. Origin stories like these can be so powerful because they open our eyes to new and different opportunities. When we see how the paths of others have crossed, it helps us look at the people in our lives in a different way as well.
Today's the day for the first annual #NSGCGenePool Twitter Chat. Yay! If you miss it live, search for the hashtag #NSGCGenePool, and play catch-up on the posts.
Countdown has begun. 7 days until Twitter gets a hefty dose of passionate genetic counselors sharing about what drew them to their calling. You can follow the discussion live next Thursday, or you can follow me on Twitter @GCBrianne to catch up later.
Tweeters, follow using the hashtag #NSGCGenePool.
A hashtag is what we used to call a pound sign back in the olden days. Sheesh! My DNA can barely keep up with all of these changes going on in the world!
