ASHG invites you to enjoy an evening of mingling, relaxing, and networking. Share your experiences from the first day of the meeting, discuss innovations you discovered, and share ideas you’ve generated.

In addition to general conversation space, the reception will feature themed zones to connect with thought leaders and peers with similar interests, as well as engage informally with quizzes and games.

A long day of science deserves a night of fun! The dress code is casual. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available.
