Professional Practice & Social Implications Committee

The Professional Practice & Social Implications Committee will recommend, and upon Board approval carry out, activities that help ASHG members and the research community advance genetics and genomics in ways that integrate and embed societal impacts within research goals and practices. The committee will consider, document, and provide to members best practices that advance genetics research and its responsible application; address benefits and implications of emerging research knowledge, technologies, and tools; develop guidance for community engagement and inclusion of diverse populations, and other activities as approved by the Board. Committee meets by conference call as needed and at the Annual Meeting.
