Message from the President
Dear APHMG Colleagues:
On behalf of the APHMG Council, I invite you to join us for the 19th Annual APHMG Workshop and Special Interest Groups Meetings at Kiawah Island, South Carolina from Wednesday, April 17, 2013 through Friday, April 19, 2013.
The annual workshop provides a forum for informative and stimulating discussion through which we share experiences and learn from each other in a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of time for networking and socializing. The Council has organized a stimulating program. We are finalizing a scientific session focusing on bioethics in the era of genomics. Other sessions will focus on genetics education across the continuum--undergraduate, GME, CME, and MOC, educating genetics and genomics trainees in the research arena, and MOC-present and future. The final titles and speakers for these stimulating sessions will be posted on the APHMG website by the end of February.
In addition, there will be time set aside for sessions of our affiliated Special Interest Groups(SIG). These meetings are included with your registration.
