Attribute Statement to ASHG President Gail Jarvik, MD, PhD
“Just a little over one week ago, eight people – six of them Asian American – were brutally killed in Atlanta. The incomprehensible loss of these eight lives occurred amid a rising number of acts of hate directed toward members of the Asian American community across the United States.
As we shared in our statement last Summer, ASHG decries racism, bias, discrimination, and hatred wherever and whenever we see it and denounces in the strongest possible terms not just the recent actions of hatred directed toward Asians and Asian Americans but acts of racism, bias and discrimination everywhere. We stand as one in solidarity with and support of all of the members of our ASHG genetics and genomics community.”
