NHGRI webinars–first one this Thursday.

Just got this notice from the Genetic Alliance newsletter:


You can learn more at the NHGRI site: http://www.genome.gov/27527023 This first one appears to be:

All About the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act of 2008 (GINA)

What is GINA? How will it affect me? How will I – and my family – be protected? Join NHGRI Deputy Director Alan Guttmacher, NHGRI Health Policy Analyst M.K. Holohan, and President and CEO of the Genetic Alliance Sharon Terry on July 17, 2008 at 1 p.m. Eastern to learn about this ground-breaking act that was passed into law in May 2008.

It does look like you have to register, so be sure to check out the NHGRI site and reply to that email for details.

I can’t attend–someone let me know how it goes! I wish I could hear it, I’ve been following this legislation for a long time….Maybe it will be available as a recording later, I can’t tell.
