Welcome to the Minnesota Genetic Counselors Association. MNGCA is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2007 and became a working chapter of the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) in 2009. We are made up of genetic counselors and genetic counseling graduate students from across the state of Minnesota. There are now over 100 genetic counselors currently practicing in Minnesota. Most are members of MNGCA and NSGC.
