More than 800 members of the genetics scientific and counseling community have volunteered to be a part of a unique resource for K-12 students and teachers – the Genetics Education Outreach Network (GEON). These human genetics professionals and advocates volunteer their time on National DNA Day as well as throughout the year to assist science teachers in increasing understanding and awareness of human genetics among students and the general public at no cost.
Feel free to modify and use this generic form letter developed by ASHG for GEON members to reach out to local teachers and schools in their community. Please contact Evelyn Mantegani if you would like ASHG to send a letter on your behalf.
