American Society of Human Genetics
The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), founded in 1948, is the primary professional membership organization for human geneticists in the Americas. The nearly 8,000 members include researchers, academicians, clinicians, laboratory practice professionals, genetic counselors, nurses and others involved in or with special interest in human genetics.
The principal objectives of ASHG include
(l) providing venues to bring investigators opportunities to share their research findings in the many areas of endeavors in human genetics;
(2) informing health professionals, legislators, health policy makers, and the general public about all aspects of human genetics; and
(3) facilitating interactions between geneticists and other communities including policy makers, industry, educators, and patient and public advocacy groups.
