Teacher Opportunities

While our outreach educational student programs provide a wonderful glimpse into the field of genetics, we are only able to be with the students for a day. Teachers have such a great influence on student achievement and career exploration, and we want to support teachers all year long, not only on the day of a classroom visit or field trip.

The Greenwood Genetic Center offers many programs to enhance teacher education – our popular summer courses provide continuing education and exposure to the latest technologies with hands-on activities. Our professional development workshops are designed to assist teachers in providing innovative lab activities for students. Our speakers bureau offers in class presentations tailored to the needs of your students.

Contact Leta M. Tribble, PhD at (864) 943-4170 or lmt@ggc.org for additional information on any of these offerings, and stay-up-to-date on our activities with our current newsletter.

Lucy's Story

Lucy's Story

When our daughter Lucy had a metabolic crisis at 7 days old, we were shocked and devastated to find out that she was born with a rare genetic disorder (MSUD). Her newborn screening results did not make it back in time to prevent the crisis, and no one at our local hospital was familiar with the disease. They did not know how to treat her. Calls were made to Greenwood Genetic Center to confirm her diagnosis...
