High School Shadowing

High school students are encouraged to apply for GGC’s one-day shadowing program on the Greenwood campus. Participation in the program will expose the student to the many opportunities and benefits of working the field of genetics. High school students will not be allowed to attend clinics or observe clinical encounters.

All shadow students should dress professionally. No shorts, jeans, t-shirts, short skirts, or open-toe shoes are permitted. 

Contact Leta M. Tribble, PhD at (864) 943-4170 or lmt@ggc.org to schedule a shadowing opportunity.
