Genetics Education

The future of medical genetics relies on enthusiastic and well-educated scientists. Greenwood Genetic Center’s Division of Education takes seriously the obligation of supporting that future by offering training and educational opportunities to middle school, high school and college students as well as healthcare professionals.

The Division of Education provides outreach educational programs including a Speaker’s Bureau and mobile science labs, as well as resources, courses, and workshops for teachers, and training for postgraduate students and healthcare providers.

The Helix Express is a newer addition to the outreach program. Purchased through funds from the SC Education Oversight Committee, the Helix Express is a cargo van that allows instructors to transport lab equipment into the classroom to accommodate more schools and classes that exceed the capacity of the Gene Machine.
