Please be aware of unofficial contractors attempting to sell to ASHG partners!

Email Lists

The most common solicitation you will receive is the offer of an email list for pre-registered ASHG 2021 attendees. ASHG does not sell nor make available emails or mailing addresses of meeting attendees, so these offers are not legitimate. Please use ASHG’s official promotional opportunities to reach attendees.

Please contact ASHG if you are unsure of the origin of any email regarding the 2021 Virtual Meeting or if you see anyone acting in violation of this policy. Official vendors will have their contact information and official forms listed on the ASHG website.
