ASHG invites you to enjoy an evening of mingling, relaxing, and a little rock and roll. A long day of science deserves a night of fun! Share your experiences from the first day of the meeting, discuss innovations you discovered, and share ideas you’ve generated. As you gather with friends and new colleagues from around the globe, be ready to dance the night away with an encore performance by Ethidium Spill, featuring Francis Collins, Elliott Margulies, and Tony Antonellis.

This event is open to all registered attendees for a small fee of $10 for trainees and $15 for non-trainees, which includes a complimentary drink and refreshments. A cash bar will also be available. Please check the appropriate box on the registration form to celebrate the human genetics community with us.
