We’re happy to share that ASHG has signed on as an official partner to the March for Science, taking place April 22, 2017, in Washington, DC and at 425+ sister marches around the world. As genetics specialists and enthusiasts, we know firsthand how valuable science is to society – indeed, it may be what brought many of us to science in the first place. We look forward to celebrating the passion and dedication of scientists worldwide, and to recognizing the enormous support and respect people around the world have for the scientific endeavor.
