Genetic Education Center
*Information on COVID-19 and GGC's Education Outreach
The Genetic Education Center is currently open for scheduled visitors or groups, but at this time we are limiting the capacity to no more than ten students to allow for appropriate social distancing. Masks are required at all times while inside the building. Tours of GGC Laboratories have been suspended until further notice. Contact Dr. Leta Tribble directly to discuss scheduling a visit at LMT@ggc.org or (864) 943-4170.
The best way to understand what happens at the Greenwood Genetic Center is to come for a visit! Our Genetic Education Center welcomes students and other
groups throughout the year for an interactive hands-on experience. Groups will learn how GGC operates and the types of activities we are involved in
from research studies to clinical care to the latest in diagnostic testing. Student groups have the opportunity to engage in genetic analysis and testing
in our student lab, learn about various topics from our faculty, as well as take a tour of GGC's Diagnostic Laboratories.
At the Genetic Education Center, students can engage in fun, entertaining and educational scenarios where they have the opportunity to learn about genetic
traits and disorders, understand the lab techniques used in making a diagnosis as well as consider the ethical implications of testing and explore
careers in the life sciences. Teachers can select from multiple lab activities including basic lab skills and genetic modules. Each of the modules
addresses STEM initiatives and South Carolina Science Standards. There is no charge to visit.
