Nancy James Adams
Alumni Spotlight: Nancy James Adams

In the early ’70s, Nancy James Adams often attended seminars and other events at her alma mater, Woman's College (now UNCG). But one day in 1973, Adams heard something on the radio that caught her attention. "I don’t remember what station I was listening to, but they used two terms I’d never heard used together – ‘genetics’ and ‘counseling,’" she recalls. She immediately began forming an idea that would lead to a groundbreaking career – and ultimately a new program at UNCG – in genetic counseling.
