"Even though I knew Genetic Counseling would touch on so many of my passions, a career change at 40 was very intimidating, and seemed impossible at times. But Bay Path's hybrid online program eliminated many of the logistical variables for a non-traditional student like me. The training has been excellent, and I landed the job of my dreams." - Page Brody G'19
