If you would like to support this effort, we need you to raise your voice! Letters of support from providers, patients, institutions, and organizations will be instrumental in getting this important legislation passed. Please see below for links to find and contact your elected officials in the Florida House and Senate. We also have a link to a sample letter of support (available as plain text or a Word document) with language you might find helpful in writing to your legislators, but we encourage you to personalize the letter as much as possible.

As of February 2020, 26 states require genetic counselors to have a valid license to practice in their state, and three additional states have passed legislation but are not yet issuing licenses. Additional information about who genetic counselors are and why FLAGC is advocating for licensure of Florida genetic counselors can be found here.
