TGen Women’s Philanthropy Council (WPC) aims to provide members with value and meaning through collective learning and action.

Through this empowering and engaging program, council members expand their personal understanding of precision medicine and how it can influence health outcomes for themselves and their loved ones.

Members form friendships and dynamic relationships with a diverse group of like-minded women and TGen’s scientific community helping to bridge the gap between science, medicine and our community.
