gc social media


Wendy Uhlmann from the University of Michigan has already published a great article about what genetics web resources are available for medial professionals (including GeneTests/GeneReviews, etc.), but this is to serve as a reference for the less-well-documented-and-considerably-less-official-but-equally-as-interesting-and-incredibly-up-to-date GC-related social media resources.

(more text will go here eventually)

…but for now, I’m hoping to use this as a resource for other genetic counseling students and professionals, to summarize what’s awesome about the web and what’s most pertinent to our profession. this will include anything from blogs, websites, twitter accounts, facebook groups. i’ll just constantly be updating this as I find new and interesting links that I myself am interested in following.

One last thing… how to follow them all? Just stick the web addys right in google reader, and it’ll do all the updates and formatting for you!
