Patient Support Groups

The Greenwood Genetic Center strives to help patients and their families connect with available resources and other families. We support several local and national parent organizations in numerous ways including coordinating meetings, providing meeting space, speaking, facilitating, sitting on boards, etc. Although there is no cure for most genetic conditions, our goal is to provide families with the education, knowledge, resources, and connections they need to enhance the quality of life for both the patient and the family as a whole.
