    Please help spread the word about a medical student-initiated genetics symposium in the Southeast.

    In addition to promoting genetics as a discipline, the organizers also hope to connect genetics special interest groups between schools.

    Millions of people have gotten direct to consumer genetic testing, and many of them have questions for their healthcare providers about the results.  These questions can be challenging for many to answer, especially given the constantly changing testing landscape. The National Society of Genetic Counselors recently put out a Practice Resource on Elective Genetic Testing, which they define as is testing that is performed in the absence of a medical indication. Among other topics, this resource covers the likelihood of detecting various results, how to evaluate a lab or test, reporting details, and pros and cons of this testing.

    Looking for an open-source textbook that is presented at the undergraduate medical student level? APHMG member Renee LeClair has written one that might be a good option for you. Her book Cell Biology, Genetics, and Biochemistry for Pre-Clinical Students is USMLE-aligned and designed to be paired with clinical correlations in class.

    Genetics in Medicine has published an important article on the terminology used to indicate human differences, such as those of race, ancestry, gender, sex, and differences in ability.  To provide practical hints, the authors quoted work published in Genetics in Medicine and suggested updates to the wording. A link to this paper "Words matter: The language of differences in human genetics" can be found in our DEIJ resources.

    In 2015, a curriculum survey led by APHMG members reported the status of genetics curricula in US and Canadian medical schools, including many of our APHMG member institutions. Our Canadian colleagues, including APHMG member Jennifer Fitzpatrick, recently published a detailed analysis of preclinical genetics curricula of Canadian medical schools that explores and compares these curricula at the level of individual syllabi and course objectives. This is an important and timely study that underscores a reality that our Association can positively impact:  Genetics remains underrepresented in undergraduate medical curricula. Thanks to all of our colleagues for their dedicated work.  Bring your ideas to the 2023 APHMG meeting and let’s work together to improve genetics access and representation in medical schools.
