We're pleased to announce that Café con Leche is a new UW GCGP student group founded by alums Juliet Torres (she/her/ella) (GCGP 2023) and Ernesto Marquez Montes (he/him/el) (GCGP 2024)!

Juliet and Ernesto wanted to cultivate a welcoming place for incoming Latine students because they understand how difficult and daunting it is to navigate a predominantly white institution and profession.

The name of the group, Café con Leche, reflects a common practice in global Latine culture of coming together with loved ones, family, or friends to connect over a cup of coffee (usually with milk!). Community and friends are so important to have during the graduate school experience and beyond. The group meets monthly to socialize and provide a supportive and encouraging time to talk, receive or provide mentoring, ask for advice, and everything in between.

Café con Leche is open to Latine UW GCGP students and anyone wanting to learn more about the Latine genetic counselor experience. If you are a prospective Latine genetic counseling student interested in attending the UW GCGP, feel free to contact Juliet Torres or Ernesto Marquez Montes.
