Have you ever been able to achieve something you never thought possible, yet when you look back you realize that you always had the power to do it? Maybe someone else shared an idea with you that sparked something or offered their help to kick things off. It doesn't matter what it is, but those moments of being able to harness your inner power to accomplish something are pretty special. ThinkGenetic Vice President of Communications and Patient Advocacy, Deepti Babu, MS, CGC, muses on this theme from the recent NSGC conference. http://ow.ly/H1aR30fmhzr #NSGC17
