The Genomics Forum is an official component of the American Public Health Association. We currently have 917
members representative of a diverse genetics and public health system. Our members are academic researchers, community leaders, nurses, social workers, physicians, genetic counselors, students, advocates and much more from across the globe. Some of us are new to genomics, some are new to public health, and some are expert in both. We share a common interest in assuring that genomics is researched and applied responsibly for individual and community health.
The Genomics Forum serves as a venue to explore our diverse perspectives on how this is best achieved through the work of our committees, workgroups, and at our Annual Meeting.
